Rabbi Lionel Blue

Not a music figure at all, but looking at the list not all our obituaries relate to music figures.

I do not have a lot of time for religious dignitaries, but Lionel Blue was a welcome voice of reason, humour and kindness which enriched our national life.
His Yiddisher humour and modesty made him a much liked figure, to Jew and gentile alike. He broke the rules of religious doctrine by coming out as a homosexual and in his many other proclamations in favour of tolerance, open mindedness & humanity.
