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.”

Barely known in the states, he has a cult following in among Jews in Britain. In 2007 the Jewish Chronicle listed him in their “Power 100” list of influential members of the UK Jewish community.
When he isn’t rapping, he’s a 27-year-old working in marketing, who graduated Cambridge.
