Hosted by Liz Schwartz. This show features interviews with Chana Andler, Director of Marketing and Development for Jewish Family and Child Service, about their innovative new program, Mensches in the Trenches.
This show focuses on the intersection of Jews, food and ethics. Host Liz Schwartz interviews Rabbi Arthur Waskow, a major proponent of the eco-kashrut movement. Eco-kashrut expands on traditional kosher dietary practices by incorporating the ethics of sustainable growing systems, humane animal production and fair treatment for farm workers and meat processors. Also featured is Rabbi Morris Allen, who founded the Hekhsher Tzedek, an ethical certification seal that will appear on kosher food products. Finally, Liz talks with two of Portland's Jewish organic farmers.
April 19, 20, and 21 2009 are the dates for Portland's Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Day) Community Commemoration.

For this year, instead of religious services the Holocaust experience will be explored through art, music, and film. In particular the paintings, letters, and poems of survivor Alice Lok Cahana will be presented and discussed. Alice Cahana is the mother of Rabbi Z. Michael Cahana of Congregation Beth Israel.
