KQED World: Sat, Feb 6, 2016 -- 3:00 AM

* Muslims of Hamtramck, Michigan - Hamtramck, Michigan was once the home of Polish Catholics and an auto manufacturing plant that employed 45,000 workers. Today it is a much smaller community, more than half of which is Muslim, and it is the only American town with a Muslim-majority city council. Lucky Severson reports from Hamtramck on how dramatically it has changed.
* Wendell Berry Farming Program - Wendell Berry, the 81-year-old award-winning poet, fiction writer and essayist, has continued throughout his life to care for the Kentucky farm that generations of his family have tended. Seeking to pass on their farming legacy to a new generation, Berry and his family have formed an alliance with Saint Catharine College, a small Catholic liberal arts school run by the Dominican Sisters of Peace. Correspondent Judy Valente talks with Mary Berry, Wendell BerryA's daughter, and with nuns, students, and faculty members at the college about the lessons and values that spring from having a spiritual kinship with the land.

* Ultra-Orthodox Yeshiva Controversy - Are private yeshivas run by Hasidic Jewish sects providing students with an education equal to that of public schools? New York filmmaker Menachem Daum reports on accusations that ultra-Orthodox Jewish schools are failing to teach secular subjects that would help prepare students for jobs. A lawsuit alleges that some of these religious schools are not complying with New York state law by not teaching English, math, and science.
* America's Original Sin - Bob Abernethy and managing editor Kim Lawton interview Jim Wallis, editor-in-chief of Sojourners magazine, about his new book, A?AmericaA's Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege, and the Bridge to a New AmericaA? and his challenge to white churches to become multiracial communities of faith.
* The Boxer - As the city of Baltimore continues to heal from the racial violence and turmoil that arose last year, Religion&Ethics NewsWeekly visits one church that is drawing young people to its ministry with a boxing gym that teaches discipline, respect, and a sense of pride.
