Our latest podcast takes a deep dive into the Washington State Jewish Archives, featuring interviews with some of our region's most legendary figures, including executives from the Seahawks and Supersonics, the founder of Costco, and the longtime leader of the Seattle Symphony, Gerard Schwarz.
Funding for Shema: Hear O'Washington is made possible by all of our generous sponsors and, in part, by a grant from the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle and by Humanities Washington and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act economic stabilization plan of 2020
