Mazel Tov to Rabbi Michael Z. Cahana for his participation on Portland Business Alliance's year long Leadership Portland program. The program teaches about important Portland institutions in areas such as government, education, justice and the arts. Graduates of the program contribute to the life and well being of our community.

Rabbi Cahana is the first clergy leader to ever participate in this Civic program and hopes to bring more attention to the ways in which the religious community can work with business and government to solve communal problems.
