Rapping Herzl's Birthday

Last Sunday was the 150th anniversary of the birth of Theodor Herzl. Jews around the globe marked the occasion with ceremonies, tributes… and at least one of them did it with a rap.

It went something like this: “Shut up and listen, to my hip hop schooling/ We talking freedom, emancipation/ A home, a land for a persecuted nation.”

Antithesis, a British Jewish rapper who labeled himself Antithesis because he’s a white middle-class Brit (get it?), launched his first video on Youtube, “Proud To Be A Zionist” in honor of the day.
