8th Tikkun Olam Award (Liz Kineke)

Dear Friends,
We are pleased to recognize Liz Kineke for our 8th Tikkun Olam award.
“Wow!  This has caught me by surprise.  I am deeply honored and humbled.  I have been working as a producer for the CBS religion unit in New York since 2005.  Our programs are meant to inspire and educate as we tend to focus not only what a particular religion believes, but how they positively impact their community.   Our shows air quarterly on CBS affiliates across the United States.  Recent program titles include, “Faith in Action: Young People Making a Difference”  “The Ministry of Animals” and “The Art of ‘The Book’ ”   Needless to say, we are never at a loss for interesting show topics!   
It was while researching the most recent show, “Haiti: Religion’s Response to Disaster” that I learned about Haiti’s role in offering refuge to Jews from Central Europe during World War II.   Not only was I surprised but everyone who has seen the program thus far has had a similar reaction.

I was an English Literature major at Denison University and after graduating in 1988 went to Washington, DC where I worked with foreign news journalists covering news events in the US and abroad.  In 1993 I made my way to New York City where I worked on biographies, corporate industrials and in the last five years documentaries about religion and spirituality.  I love animals, have an active yoga practice and enjoy hiking for fun!

Thank you for the recognition, I don’t feel worthy of the award but appreciate your interest in the work we are doing.”

Special words to Liz: Your show promises to be a vivid reminder of what people of faith, in all religions, can accomplish when acting as a force for the good. We believe, because of your vision, compassionate understanding and creativity, more hands and hearts will open and respond to the needs of Haiti.
