Middle East cuisine followed by speaker/activist Nomika Zion, on "Raising Another Voice.

Nomika Zion is a granddaughter of Yaakov Hazan, co-founder of the first kibbutz in Israel. In 1987 Nomika founded the urban kibbutz Migvan in Sderot, Israel, situated in a quiet agricultural area a mile and a half from the border. Since the beginning of the Second Intifada in 2000, Sderot became the target of relentless bombardment by Qassam rockets launched by Palestinian militant groups in Gaza. The intensification of rocket-fire in 2005 has made Sderot a house-hold name in the west.

In August, 2009, Nomika published the Sderot War Diary "Not in my name and not for me you went to war." The Diary takes Israel to task for the invasions of Gaza, and was published in 22 different languages. Because of this powerful letter, Nomika received several international peace prizes including the 2009 Niarchos Prize for Survivorship.
