Jewish Chicken Farmers

I have a soft spot in my heart for chickens. Dumb as they are, my grandmother had chickens, my mother had chickens and yes, I had chickens. They made for very educational pets.

I received this notice:
In case you missed it earlier, we are pleased that “A Home on the Range: The Jewish Chicken Ranchers of Petaluma” will be re-broadcast this Sunday, December 30th on KQED, channel 9, at 6 pm as part of their Truly CA series.

There’s a woman in my congregation whose father was one of those Jewish Petaluma chicken farmers and for years I lived next door to an old gentleman who was one of the non-Jewish farmers. He remembered the Jewish farmers of his growing up days.

If you won’t be home Sunday night either tape it or check the website for other dates it will be shown.
