Our Story

Our Name, Artza

“I will bless those who bless you… and all the families of the earth shall be blessed through you…and they went out towards the Land (Artza)”

(Genesis 12:3-5)

Artza is Hebrew for “towards the Land”. Inspired by Genesis 12:3-5, our name is meant to capture the experience we hope to bring you – namely, a journey “towards the Land” of Israel. A land with rolling hills and dusty sands. A land that is flowing with milk and honey. A land with rich history and a vibrant future. A land filled with faith and promise.

Our mission is to bring you Artza and its blessings.

Galilee

Sidyanna

In the city of Cana in the Galilee, there is an award-winning olive oil factory and a unique non-profit looking to make changes for the better from the ground up. It may surprise you to learn that they are one in the same.

Established in 1996, Sindyanna of Galilee is the only certified Fair-Trade olive oil producer in Israel. The boutique producer employs Arab and Jewish women and endeavors to create economic opportunities while supporting local olive growers and producers.

Galilee

Michael soaps

In an industrial center in the Galilee, next to a boutique winery and bakery, is a small cosmetics gem of a store called Michal Soaps. First established by Michal and her husband in their own backyard, Michal Soaps makes all-natural cosmetics that have become something of a “must have”’ in Israel.

Emphasizing all-natural ingredients, this community focused company now employs over 35 people who craft all-natural soaps and cosmetics by hand.

Jerusalem

Off the wall spices

In the heart of the Old City of Jerusalem,  Simcha founded Off the Wall  out of a desire to deliver the best spices in Israel to visitors from around the world.

As Simcha tells it, his love for high quality spices and the Land of the Bible came from his childhood. He grew up as one of 14 children on Mount Zion, just outside the Old City walls, and was inspired by the sites, sounds and smells of this holy city – smells like rosemary, sage and lavender that can be found dotting the hills of this golden terrain.

Along with his brother-in-law Akivah, they work to deliver the highest quality local spices from spice farms around Israel.
