The Jewish Review staff
Since its e-newspaper re-launch in 2020, The Jewish Review has put the stories of Portland’s Jewish community and beyond to the eyes of readers every two weeks. Now it brings those stories to your ears. 
“The Jewish Review Podcast” makes its debut today on all major podcasting platforms. Hosted by Jewish Review editor Rockne Roll, the podcast will serve as an extension of the Review’s award-winning journalism, covering the personalities and stories that shape Portland’s Jewish culture to sharing perspectives on issues that affect local and global Judaism, with more than a dash of humor and fun thrown in.
“A podcast is a natural way to expand the Review’s reach and tell different kinds of stories,” Roll said. “It offers an opportunity to add depth to the Review’s reporting, and I’m honored to help grow the scope of Jewish journalism here in Oregon.”
“We are excited to offer this new platform to our Jewish community,” Jewish Federation of Greater Portland President and CEO Marc Blattner said. “We are confident Rockne will have interesting and informative guests on a regular basis. We hope you take the time to download and listen.”
Today’s debut episode features Roll’s interview with Jewish Federations of North America Board Chair Julie Platt. 
“The team here at the Federation connected with Julie before she visited last month and asked if she would be willing to be the first guest,” Roll explained. “It was so gracious of her to say yes, and I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation.”
The Jewish Review Podcast will release episodes every two weeks, corresponding with issue dates for The Jewish Review newspaper. To hear the latest episode, visit or search “The Jewish Review Podcast” on your preferred podcast platform.
