What You See is What You Get!

Rabbi Greg Wall

There are no frills on the cover of this book, what you see is what you get. Rabbi Greg Wall  (RGW) a man of pure unadulterated liberation. My meeting with RGW was enthralling; unlike the atypical Rabbis, he is out of the box being himself. Interacting genres and bridging other cultures by playing his saxophone and taking avant-garde music to another level. He is his own master.   
 
It was my pleasure not only meeting him but also joining him on stage a few weeks ago doing one of my songs. He was on a small tour of Israel raising funds for the organization ‘Pioneers for a Cure’.  We had a short conversation about where I am from, about my music, and the love of music. When he heard I came from Trinidad & Tobago he asked me if I knew the Mighty Sparrow. My mouth dropped open. (For those of you who do not know the Mighty Sparrow he is one of our greatest entertainers and vocalist from my country and the Caribbean region).  He said he loved Sparrows music and he had quite a lot of his CDs.

I looked at this man with a different eye; White, Jewish Orthodox, with such an open mind “Wow”! Uncanny some of you are saying but this shows me that people are people it does not matter our religion, race our ethnicity. To some extent there is unity amongst us even though there are differences in our beliefs, environment and moral fiber.
 
I want to thank Rabbi Greg Wall for giving me a deeper insight and say ‘Mazal Tov!’ How many of us can say we are listening or having cds of Jewish Zelmer music at our home. I do not …lol.
 
Shalom.
