Honey and Candles

At Shoresh, we see our Bela’s Bees Honey and beeswax Shabbat and Chanukah candles as more than just products- they are the delicious and incredible result to our deep commitment to saving the bees through hands-on Jewish education and activism. At Bela Farm, Shoresh’s rural centre for land-based Judaism,we are planting 20 acres of bee pasture to nurture and feed our bees.

Our holistic approach to beekeeping targets bee health and habitat restoration and results in happier, healthier bees and honey and beeswax candles.


PURCHASING HONEY AND CANDLES :

Every year before Rosh Hashana, we set up pop-up markets across the GTA. Stay tuned for our 2018 Honey markets that will be held at the Miles Nadal JCC, the Lipa Green Centre and the Kavanah Garden. To purchase Shabbat candles and Bela’s Bees 2017 honey, email sabrina@shoresh.ca.


BELA’S BEES PRICING PHILOSOPHY :

Our honey is more than just a product.​ It is the delicious result of our deep ​commitment to saving the bees.​ We price our honey to reflect the time ​and resources that go into our unique ​(and award-winning!) model of  sustainable Jewish beekeeping.​

This includes:

  • Planting our 20-acre Bee Sanctuary at Bela Farm​
  • Housing and feeding our 1.2 million honey bees ​
  • Educating community members about the vital role of pollinators through hands-on Jewish ​environmental programs​

We ask that you consider the TRUE COST of this liquid gold when purchasing our honey.  ​
