Meet the Artist: Fair Trade Judaica
Fair Trade Judaica (FTJ) is building a fair trade movement in the Jewish community, linking Jewish values of human dignity, self-sufficiency, and environmental sustainability with fair trade standards assuring fair and livable wages, no child labor, healthy and safe working conditions. FTJ accomplishes this through outreach/education, and expanding the production, distribution, and sale of Fair Trade Judaica products. FTJ envisions a world in which Jewish consumers recognize fair trade as an expression of core Jewish values, seek out fair trade Judaica products, and use their purchasing power to support thriving communities of artisans around the world.Learn More
