This week's BEKI Zoom Schmooze will be a conversation about Fair Trade with Susan Sklar, the Interfaith Team Manager at Equal Exchange. Started in 1986 as a food co-op, Equal Exchange facilitates the Jewish Fair Trade Project, which assists Jewish institutions and individuals in purchasing kosher and Fair Trade coffee, tea and chocolate. Their mission is to build long-term trade partnerships that are economically just and environmentally sound. We’ll learn about fair trade and how we might want to adjust our buying habits at home and at our shul. Susan is the chair of her synagogue’s Social Action Committee and has worked at Equal Exchange for 17 years.
