Pnei Kedem organic olive oil

Michael Lourie is an oleh from Melbourne, Australia. He is currently a resident of Pnei Kedem, a settlement in the Judean hills overlooking the Dead Sea that he helped found together with his wife Suzy and Garin Ofni. They have recently opened a visitor's center onsite.

Not only is agriculture in Pnei Kedem an expression of love of the land of Israel, but it also began as an effort to protect the young settlement from local Arabs who habitually encroached upon its lands and intimidated its inhabitants. Michael and some other farmers have planted olive groves and vineyards along the perimeter of Pnei Kedem, thereby creating a buffer zone between the Arabs and the Jewish inhabitants with the farmers serving as a vital presence in the area.

The Pnei Kedem farmers have observed shemitah with great devotion as agents of the Gush Etzion otzar beit din. It is a big mitzvah to support them and help cover their expenses by purchasing the holy oil from them. It is now possible to order the organic olive oil.

Note that in a taste-testing competition among olive oils grown in Judah and Samaria, Pnei Kedem organic olive oil won first place!


Certified by the otzar beit din of Gush Etzion.

Rosh Pinah Organic Olive Oil

Tsvi Klejman grows 11 dunams (1.1 hectares) of Syrian olives near Rosh Pina. Tsvi served as an otzar beit din agent of the Golan Heights beit din (Rabbi Uri Sedan, former rabbi of Nov). This year, his trees produced some 450 L of organic olive oil.
