Hosted by Liz Schwartz, featuring a special May Day show of Jewish labor songs and an interview with Rabbi Shmuly Yanklowitz, Founder and President of Uri L'Tzedek, the first Orthodox Jewish social justice organization, which is working to ensure fair labor practices for workers in kosher restaurants. For more information on Uri L'Tzedek, go to www.utzedek.org. Audio for this interview is posted on the Yiddish Hour site; click on the "Audio" tab to listen online or download.

Thanks to Mitch Ritter, Sheila Fox, Frank Krasnowsky, Susan Leviton, Mark Levy, Clarissa Cecilia Herzberg and Scott Berger for sharing their music for this week's show. As always, I didn't have time to play all the music I'd planned, so tune in on May 15 for more Jewish labor music, and thanks to everyone who renewed or became new members of KBOO during our spring membership drive. If you haven't yet become a member, you can do so by clicking on the tip jar in the upper right-hand corner of the KBOO website.
