Jesse Rifkin is the musical genius and multi-instrumentalist behind the "The Wailing Wall."  While Jesse may have also had something to do with the erection of the Temple, he most certainly is responsible for creating thought provoking and moving songs that are garnering him critical acclaim across the country.  Jesse’s most recent album The Low Hanging Fruit, was just released on JDub Records (Editors note, JDub owns Jewcy), and Jesse took some time to sit down and answer some of our questions. What is your favorite Animal and why?

Eric Burdon, because he also went on to record "Spill The Wine" with War. iPhone or Blackberry?  

Blackberry, duh. You can’t eat an iphone! Beatles or Rolling Stones for Greatest Rock Band of All Time?

The Beatles were my favorite band when I was four, but right now my answer is the Stones because the Exile on Main St. reissue is the only thing I have been in the mood to listen to for the past two weeks. If you were stuck on a desert Island and could only bring three albums, which three would you bring?

Three copies of Nico’s Desertshore Do you have a favorite Rabbi from the Talmud?

Rav Papa, because his penis was the size of a Harpanian basket (I shit you not, look it up) Any reaction to being named Big Jewcy?

Are you calling me fat?
