Israelity Tour Hip-Hops Down the West Coast This Month

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Nothing says Hebrew like some good old (testament) Hip-Hop.

Say what?

The Israelity Tour, which is sponsored by Birthright Israel, is heading out on a West Coast tour, and will be hitting LA on February 16th for a night of music and comedy. Featured performers included Subliminal, Israel's #1 selling rap artist, and members of the T.A.C.T. Family (kind of like Subliminal's Wu-Tang Clan), as well as hip-hop/funk band Coolooloosh and singer-songwriter Michelle Citrin, a.k.a. Rosh Hashanah Girl. The show is hosted by comic Mo Mandel, who you may have seen on Comedy Central's Open Mic Fight [warning: page automatically shows video].

So what kind of music will you be hearing? We're told by the folks behind the Israelity Tour's blog that "Sivan [of Subliminal's T.A.C.T. Family] 'Emphasizes Social Justice, Under-Emphasizes Own Hotness.'" Still not sure what it's all about? Get a sneak peek of the show in the preview video (above) put together by Birthright Israel. Tickets are a mere $15 in advance...and you know you've got some of that hard-won dreidel game gelt burning a hole in your kosher piggy bank you're itching to spend.
