Part of Rabbi Rachel Kahn-Troster’s fight against modern-day slavery is professional.

As a major goal of her work as director of North American Programs for the continent’s branch of the Rabbis for Human Rights (RHR) organization, where she coordinates a national educational and lobbying effort, she is responsible for raising consciousness of the issue.

And part of her fight is personal. How she buys bananas.

In Immokalee, Fla., the country’s major tomato-growing site, the visiting rabbis meet with local workers.
