*Bring a new, unwrapped toy to participate in our charity toy drive and get the chance to win some awesome prizes. Hip Hop Hanukah, a one-night celebration of the Jewish Festival of Lights, will bring together arts and charity and feature Jewish hip-hop sensation SOCALLED, with Hanukah songs and music from his upcoming CD.
Montreal-based SOCALLED (aka Josh Dolgin) combines hip hop, rap and funk with Yiddish theatre tunes and old-school Klezmer samples gleaned from 78 rpm records rescued out of derelict basements and garbage piles. Spicing up his eclectic music mix with electric guitar, bass, horns and live folk musicians on traditional instruments, it’s an irresistible sonic tapestry that promises a not-to-be-missed evening!
HIP HOP HANUKAH TOY DRIVE: Please bring a new unwrapped toy to the event for a chance to win some awesome prizes! Toys will be donated to Chai Life Line, an organization that brings hope to children suffering from serious illness & their families. Toy donations will be matched by Best Made Toys, a local toy importer.
