What can Matt and the Bible Raps do in Cleveland?
A Performance at the @akiva's Opening Event
Multi-media performance of Torah rich songs offering many opportunities for interactivity & audience participation.
Participants create an original piece of music – from lyrics to beat to visual effects – using text they’ve learned & internalized. We create a custom source sheet to teach a text of your choosing. The workshop includes basic lessons on rap, hip hop & rhyme, the concept of 4-4 time, & transforming text into rap. Everyone learns the source sheet & then groups are formed to work on the elements included in the final rap song & music video (video clip creation is an option).
We share how to do what we do best, explaining our pedagogy as well as practical techniques educators can apply during their very next class. Giving educators an inside look at how to break down the many resources available to Jewish experiences, they will be better informed to choose what’s best for their particular class.
Working knowledge of how to use Bible Raps tools in classrooms – such as the Bible Raps RAPport.
Practice using the techniques for harnessing the power of rap to teach various subjects in their own classes.
