As we continue to celebrate Women’s History Month, we have the story of a candle-making workshop for women in Palestine that’s helping them support their families during the pandemic.

But it’s what’s “in” their candles that’s really getting people’s attention.

Osama Hamdan is the coordinator of The Hospitable Bethany Project. Osama joined Currents News to discuss the history behind the candles and how the project brought people of different faiths together.

They’re working on a new website right now, but if you’d like to buy one of the Bethany workshop candles, you can contact them through their Instagram page at @Lavender.Store9  and send them a direct message.
