The Torah of Ziggy

Quite a tiyule from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv this morning for Lorelai Kude, intrepid journalist (making her own press passes since 1973), who went to the (beautiful!) Sheraton Tel Aviv with one thought in mind: to invite Ziggy Marley to Shabbos. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN to Ziggy Marley's Press Conference (which begins with a few words from Michael Goldwasser and Ras I Ray of the Easy All-Stars, who are performing with Ziggy on the "Road to Zion" Tour).  

Ziggy had a lot to say that was Torah. About corporations, individuals, governments which interfere with the rights of citizens, health and herbal healing, and love being his religion. Some of his statements could have come directly out of the features we've done on Tzibur B'nai Yisrael and the idea of personal responsibility as defined by Torah (and how Corporations are the antithesis of that concept).

One of the surprises of the press conference was Ziggy's astonishment to find out that he's playing the same night as Paul Simon in Israel. Immediately he suggested they play together. We second that emotion - Ziggy and Paul, you're both invited to come to Undisclosed Studio G to hang out, play music and get comfy.

And of course - Ziggy and family, Paul Simon & family, Michael Goldwasser, Ras I Ray and friends ... you're all invited for Shabbos. Email us at: radiofreenachlaot@gmail.com for directions!
