VIDEO: Nissim with Rabbi Benzaqen

September 13, 2013 1 min read

Check out this amazing studio session with rapper Nissim and his rabbi, Rabbi Simon Benzaquen, member of Seattle’s Beit Din and former Vice President of the Rabbinical Council of America!

It’s an amazing amalgamation of rap, chazzanus, and acoustic work. The heartfelt lyrics pull the connections and hope felt by Nissim’s family and adopted family – the African American story and the Jewish people during the Holocaust. Nissim’s and Rabbi Benzaquen’s partnership has been making waves, as evidenced by this article in the Jerusalem Post. Amazing stuff indeed!
