As a group of Macabees, students will refine the olive oil needed for the Temple Menorah while they:


·         Pit fresh olives, squeeze them with a hand press.

·         Strain and then spin the extract in a centrifuge to separate the pure oil.

·         Enjoy a video of an olive oil factory in Italy, which introduces them to the modern process.

·         Fashion a wick out of cotton for use with the oil when lighting the Menorah.

·         Take home a sample of the oil.
