Rappers and Rabbis did a great session at the recent Bible Raps “Hip Hop and Judaism” retreat in Philadelphia. It was amazing to hear Rabba Yaffa break down the Oral Tradition with Pirkei Avot texts and a stable of emcess. The connections made between Rap and Rabbinics were fascinating.
“Rappers & Rabbis” is hosted by Rapper Matt Bar, Rabba Yaffa Epstein, Rabbi AdAm Mayer and Rabbi Ethan Witkovsky. Join us every two weeks for a lively hip hop havruta-style Torah conversation with a rotating cast of Pardes alumni and holy MCs. Each episode is framed by a question with metaphysical ramifications, such as “Why did God create the snake?” Or “Can Rabba Yaffa Epstein rap?” See https://elmad.pardes.org/topic/rappers-and-rabbis/ to listen to more episodes in the series.
