Late Night on Lloyd Street: DIY Olive Oil? ImPRESSive!


Thursday, December 18th, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.


With Kayam Farm at Pearlstone Center





The miracle of Hannukah: Oil for one day of lighting the ancient temple lasted a full 8 days!… but why did it take 8 days? Get excited for a night of pitting, pressing and processing olives into olive oil with the Pearlstone Center Farm staff. Bring “Olive” your questions… Like why is olive oil so important to the Jewish community? And is olive oil really good for you? What can I do with it besides light ancient Menorahs and fry latkes? Finally, have the chance to make your own olive oil creations such as infused oil using herbs from Pearlstone’s farm, or dyed decorative Channukiah oil to take home. They also make great gifts!


As with all late nights we will have plenty of food and drink available. Please be aware this event has a maximum number of places available so arrive early to avoid disappointment. Contact Trillion Attwood at 410-732-6402 x215 or by email attattwood@jewishmuseummd.org with questions!
