Enjoy learning (virtual) hands on about Palestinian traditional food, and the realities of living and eating under military occupation or blockade. Claire Anastas will be our second host, on November 2 at 10:30AM. She lives under military occupation on the West Bank and, we hope, will come to us live from there.

Why this event? Fall is harvest time throughout the Northern hemisphere, and in Palestine and Israel, the October olive harvest is a deeply important time for community, culture, and traditional food for the coming year. But it’s also a time where violence directed at Palestinian farmers spikes to new levels, as radical Jewish settlers target olive trees and harvesters. The World Council of Churches offers extensive videos and photos in a special project launched last year, and you can use these freely in your community of faith.

New for this year, and accompanying our Taste events: The Palestine Service for Peace was created by the Saskatchewan and Ontario Taste of Palestine Group, and compiled and edited by Ineke Medcalf. It’s available on YouTube- use freely in your worship services.
