It's a PRESSING Matter!

Olive Oil Press

Discover the ancient art of olive pressing much the same way as it was done during the time of the Chanukah story. As a group of Maccabees, students will refine the olive oil needed for the Temple Menorah.

Steps Include:
1) Pitting fresh olives and squeezing them with a hand press.
2) Straining and then spinning the extract in a centrifuge to separate the pure oil.
3) Enjoying a virtual tour of an olive oil factory in Italy (including an introduction to the modern process)
4) Fashioning a wick out of cotton for use with the oil when lighting the Menorah.
5) Crafting and taking home handmad beeswax candle.
We can't promise the oil will burn for eight days, but the memories are sure to last a lifetime!
