*Muslim Initiatives Against Extremism - As Islamic terrorists around the world attempt to recruit young Muslims to join their cause, many US Muslims are coming together to protect their communities from radicalization with new programs. Muslim Public Affairs Council national policy analyst Hoda Elshishtawy says MPAC's Safe Spaces initiative is "creating these safe spaces so that people can talk about issues and grievances that they have and work through them in a healthy way." (Originally broadcast November 14, 2014)
*India's Sacred Cows - Cows are considered sacred by Hindus in India. They were the favorite animal of Lord Krishna, and they serve as a symbol of wealth, strength, and abundance. But people who want to protect these creatures must also deal with those in modern, urban India who think cows are little more than a nuisance. (Originally broadcast February 7, 2014)
*Women's Purim - The highlight of the Jewish celebration of Purim features reading aloud the complex and heroic account in the Book of Esther of Esther'?'s willingness to risk her life to save the Jewish people from annihilation by the King of Persia.

R&E visits a Modern Orthodox synagogue, Washington Heights Congregation in New York City (also known as ?The Bridge Shul?), where the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance holds its annual reading of the Book of Esther. (Originally broadcast March 21, 2014)
