As a group of Macabees, children 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.
