Chanukah Concert with Bible Raps

The Bible Raps Project uses the medium of rap music within to promote
our core Jewish texts—currently perceived by much of the youth market as
boring, irrelevant and stale—and instead, present them as rich sources
of meaning, drama, and inspiration. Or, in the words of a 13 year old
listener, "cool!”. In doing so, The Bible Raps Project helps transform
the classroom experience, providing a new and powerful tool for Jewish
educators. By maintaining the rich, nuanced nature of the Bible stories

By December David was forced to wear an armband and then a yellow Star of David and he had to step off the sidewalk and into the street when German soldiers approached.

How Is This Night Different from All Others? – Biblical Insights to Enhance Your Seder with Rabbi Andrea Weiss, PhD

There are a number of biblical texts related to the Passover seder that yield new information and insights to bring to your Passover seder. We will uncover an early tradition of seven plagues, and discuss why “plagues” is the not best word to describe these events. We will also explore several readings from The Torah: A Women’s Commentary related to the holiday and the biblical women who played a vital role in the early part of the Passover story.
