We think this tahini is the best tahini, but we also like that it's made by good people. Julia Zaher, owner of Al Arz, faced boycotts when she donated to an Israeli LGBT rights organization. But she responded simply that when she sees people in a tough place, she likes to help them.
Her tahini is smooth and nutty, never bitter.

There are a million reasons to keep tahini in your pantry.
