"Squeezed: What You Don't Know About Orange Juice."

Host Bruce Silverman interviews Alissa Hamilton, author of "Squeezed: What You Don't Know About Orange Juice."

Alissa Hamilton is a Food and Society Policy Fellow with the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy. She lives in Toronto.

Close to three quarters of U.S. households buy orange juice. Its popularity crosses class, cultural, racial, and regional divides. Why do so many of us drink orange juice? How did it turn from a luxury into a staple in just a few years? More important, how is it that we don’t know the real reasons behind OJ’s popularity or understand the processes by which the juice is produced?

Judging in Difficult Times and EcoKashrut

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.

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.
