About Sindyanna of Galilee
There is a place in the heart of the Galilee, in the village of Kanna, where Jewish and Arab women work in equality and mutual respect: Sindyanna of Galilee’s factory and Visitors Center for Fair Trade. We invite you to be part of our vision of a just society with peace and equal opportunity for all. Sindyanna of Galilee is a unique non-profit organization led by a team of Arab and Jewish women working to create social change from the ground up. Our goals are to produce outstanding olive oil and other premium food products, while enhancing Arab-Jewish cooperation, promoting Fair Trade, creating economic opportunities for Arab women, and assisting local growers and producers. We offer group activities including olive oil tastings, basket weaving workshops, cooking workshops with local chefs, and lunches offering traditional cuisine (advance registration is required for all). You can also purchase Sindyanna’s quality products, including organic and regular olive oil, za’atar (a hyssop-based herb blend), honey, almonds, carob syrup, and olive-oil cosmetics, as well as food from local producers, palm-frond baskets, embroidery, and other traditional crafts.

Sindyanna hosted a wonderful lunch for our tour group, gave us a lovely presentation, and allowed us plenty of time to shop their remarkable products, including olive oil, honey, soap and more. The local workers also shared about their life and work. A great experience and a great cause!

I traveled to Israel with my 2 teenage boys, and we made an appointment to visit Sindyanna. It was such an incredible treat. Our hostess spent SO much time with us, and we learned so much! The boys and I thoroughly enjoyed learning how to taste different olive oils and how to make za'atar, and we were thrilled to have the za'atar, and the oil and soaps from the gift shop, to take home with us! I highly recommend a visit here...it is a truly inspiring place! Thanks to everyone at Sindyanna!

We were lucky enough to visit Sindyanna while there was a group being offered tastings of several delicious products made by local Arab farmers, including home made zatar bread, tahini, olive oil, and real carob syrup which was amazing, plain or mixed with tahini. Many other appealing products made by local Arab women were on display. The short film which explains the work of Sindyanna is a moving testament to the group's great work for Jewish-Arab co-operation, that made my visit to northern Israel much more meaningful.
