Fri, 02/05/2010

Shalom Portland brings you a talk by Federal Judge Myron Thompson, "Judging in Difficult Times:  Berlin 1933 to Birmingham 1963".  In this talk recorded at Congregation Beth Israel Judge Thompson speaks of the parallels between discrimination against Jews in Germany in the 1930's, and his personal experiences with Jim Crow laws as a youth. Judge Thompson also talks about the need for empathy from the judicial system.

Haiti, Race and International Adoption

The arrest of 10 American Baptists for attempting to take children out of Haiti without permission has rekindled the debate over international adoption. Many Americans believe the plight of Haitian children more than justifies removal of orphans to new homes abroad. Critics fear incorrect identification of Haitian children as orphans and the potential for human trafficking.

Haiti relief efforts:
We have done some research, and are recommending these groups, which have a track record of working with the community on the ground in Haiti, and are either Haitian-led or take their lead from Haitian ground staff, to empower the community with solidarity, not charity.

Short Description: 
Truffle dogs, parsnips and turnips, and Chinese New Year.

We speak with local dog trainers and mycologists about how hunting with hounds could improve the culinary reputation of Oregon's underground wild truffles. Using dogs, instead of blindly hand-raking, is less damaging to forest ecosystem, as truffles grow at the roots of young Douglas firs.

Then we hear from Emily Stimac of the First Alternative Co-op in Corvallis on how to cook with in-season parsnips and turnips.

Finally, we close with food recommendations for the upcoming Chinese New Year.
