Bible Raps: All Tatted Up

By Matt Bar

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, March 2010

While teaching Hebrew school, the author creates Bible raps as a way for students to engage the text. Rap, in a classroom setting, contains the charm of nursery rhymes. It grows adolescents' attitude into a song, a story to run free in the classroom and be tracked and heard forever. The author describes its great potential as an outlet and educational tool.
