Pit fresh olives, squeeze them with a hand press; Strain and spin the extract in a centrifuge to separate the pure oil; Enjoy a video of an olive oil factory in Italy, which introduces them to the modern process; Fashion a wick out of cotton for use with the oil when lighting the Menorah; Take home a sample of the oil.
