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.
