Mission: The Bible Raps Project is a new initiative aimed at exciting young Jewish students about Judaism, Jewish Heritage, and Jewish texts.  Built around a series of raps that draw on texts from the Bible and Midrash, The Bible Raps Project resonates Jewish youth in a way that traditional media cannot by fusing rap music--this generation’s most powerful mode of cultural communication--with Jewish discourse. It is an innovative strategy, comprising professional grade music production and an accompanying curriculum, to express the value of Jewish peoplehood and cultural relevancy to young Jews while simultaneously injecting needed excitement into the Jewish educational experience.
