Support peace in Palestine and Israel, and involve all generations in becoming a justice-seeking church. The Palestine Peace Box, a practical tool for worship and study, is available on an ongoing basis along with intergenerational worship, sermon, and workshop resources. Accompanying online resources can be used in worship, at a meeting, at a coffee time, or any other time that works for you.

Formerly offered as an Advent-only resource, the Palestine Peace Box is now available year-round from directly from Zatoun! Please visit Zatoun to order or contact Zatoun for more information.

Items in the Palestine Peace Box include:

  • 750 ml bottle olive oil
  • Za’atar thyme herb mix
  • bar of olive oil soap

The individual items in your Palestine Peace Box can be offered for consignment sale in your community of faith or you can buy them yourself. These make wonderful gifts and allow you to promote Zatoun in your community while advocating for economic justice for Palestinians.

  • Offer them for sale after worship.
  • Sell them at an alternative giving fair.
  • They make great Christmas or housewarming presents.

For over 10 years, Canadians working for a just peace in Israel and Palestine have been purchasing and distributing Zatoun olive oil and other products (soap, herbs, embroidered craft items) as a means of advocating for economic justice for Palestinians and supporting Palestinian livelihoods. Plus, they enjoy the high-quality olive oil and other products!

Zatoun (registered as “Palestine Peace Awareness Inc.”) is a registered non-profit organization. Proceeds are used to directly benefit Palestinian farmers and children living in occupied Palestine and to create awareness for peace in Palestine.
