Tomorrow is Election Day and also marks the one-year countdown to our next presidential election. In case you haven’t noticed, things are heating up and citizens are speaking out, across the political spectrum.
One voice in the political mix is Arlo Guthrie. Two weeks ago in NYC he sang songs, including “This Little Light of Mine,” with Pete Seeger and other buddies as part of #OccupyWallStreet. Incidentally, this all took place not too far from where little Arlo received bar mitzvah lessons from Meir Kahane, in Kahane’s pre-JDL days.
“Rabbi Kahane was a really nice, patient teacher, but shortly after he gave me my lessons, he started going haywire. Maybe I was responsible,” Guthrie later joked.
