Making Olive Oil

In the Temple, more than 2,000 years ago, the Menorah was lit with wicks in olive oil. Today too, many Jews light their Chanukah Menorahs using pure olive oil.

why not have a video showing the making of olive oil in Israel...seems odd to me to present the making of olive oil in Italy when Israel produces so much olive oil and of course the Chanukah story took place right here in the holy land, Israel Reply

Precious oil Nice to see the olive trees and the preparation of the oil.

"And thou shalt command the children of Israel, that they bring thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamp to burn always."
Ex 27:20

O G-d of Israel, make us our lamps to burn always for You.

Happy Chanukah to all of you Reply
