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.
We'll also hear a segment of a show on Jewish food produced by Liz Schwartz. Rabbi Arthur Waskow is interviewed on the subject of ecokashrut, a concept where the intersection of ethics and kosher food production is explored.
