Achieving an end to poverty is a wish many faiths share. Kimberly Buchanan, Director of Development & Whole Family Services for the Washington County Community Action Council, joins Rabbi Mark for a discussion on how Circles is doing just that.

Afterwards, Rabbi Mark is joined by his mentee, Wesley Mason, who came to Judaism later in life, and producer Kristina Manente, who considers herself Agnostic. Together they discuss why young people aren't interested in organized religion or are leaving it in droves (and possibly what organizations and congregations can do to counteract that).

Wesley Mason grew up in Western Maryland and now lives in Hagerstown. He is a classical violinist who trained with a master teacher in Russia and has performed extensively across the country. He is part of the congregation at B'nai Abraham in Hagerstown where Rabbi Mark is the rabbi. 

Kristina Manente is the producer, director, and engineer behind The Interfaith Roundtable and manages both The Frederick Podcast Network and The Hub City Podcast Network at Manning Media. She is on-air at Key 103 as Curly, and is mother to two small dogs.

Listen to The Interfaith Roundtable with Rabbi Mark every Saturday morning on 98.9 FM/ AM 1490 WARK, with the podcast version airing a week later at Listen Hagerstown.
