Pesach is a celebration of freedom – the freedom to make life choices. We at Shefa are determined to give our clients the ability to mindfully choose products that create a positive impact that extends beyond environmental considerations to social and ethical sensitivities. For this reason we spend most of our resources searching the country for the most authentic impact-verified Israeli-made products.
This Pesach, when many of us will be celebrating without extended family and friends, we are pleased to provide you with the opportunity to send a Shefa Impact Gift Basket to someone in Israel. In this way show your loved ones that you care whilst supporting some very special small businesses in Israel.
We are delighted to showcase four remarkable impact-verified suppliers in our Shefa Impact Gift Basket catalog this Pesach. We are further privileged to be associated with Leket Israel, The Israel National Foodbank focussed on rescuing healthy, surplus food and delivering it to those in need through partner nonprofit organizations to which 10% of net proceeds from sales are donated.

Meshek Tushia has now scaled to wine production creating a sensational suite of wines set to make a real noise in the Israeli wine market.

The Tabor Winery are trailblazers in the emerging ‘ecological wine’ industry in Israel. Tabor Winery was established in 1999 by 4 experienced vineyard families. Located in Tabor village up on the Galilee Mountains, Tabor Winery started small, while soon becoming one of Israel’s leading wineries. This trajectory is attributed to creativity, determination and ecological care, that led to its current suite of exceptional wines. After studying all of its vineyards for three years, together with the Society for the Protection of Nature, Tabor has been implementing significant steps to restore the ecological balance and increase the biodiversity and stability of its vineyards environments.
