Rappers and Rabbis Episode 12: Why Jonah for Yom Kippur?

Posted by Bible Raps on September 16, 2018
Topics: Rappers and Rabbis, Yom Kippur

What are the different models of tshuva Jonah encounters? Rabbi AdAm’s Torah gets deep like a Leviathan. Rapper Matt spits bars like a whale spits prophets! Get dizzy following Jonah on his roller-coaster of an adventure (geographically and spiritually).

“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.
