Fair Trade Dayenu

A few weeks I attended a Unity Seder, an interfaith passover meal. We sang a song called Dayenu which acknowledges that even a single blessing would have been sufficient; "It would have been enough for us". Talia Cooper imagined people singing Dayenu in the future when child labor and all forms of slavery have been abolished. She now sings Fair Trade Dayenu " to remember the end of the Jews' slavery in Eygpt." Thank you Fair Trade Judaica for sharing this.

of an establishment selling Fair Trade coffee. Such is the case with Santa Cruz Coffee Roasting Company, a local fixture for over 30 years. Their coffee can also be found in stores locally. Thank you for supporting small farmers around the world.
