Here’s the first installment of our Hanukkah Rap! See details below for more information.
Students in Grades 1-3 are invited to participate in creating a song about Hanukkah in the form of a rap. Students will write the lyrics, come to the music room for a recording and have the song featured here on our blog. Lyrics either in Hebrew or English are welcome! Click below to listen to the beat and first verse.
“So they fought the Greeks heroically
And they boogied to the Temple in jubilee
They cleaned the dirt took the idols out
And when they were done the all began to shout”
This project allows students to:
- Develop creativity in a new form
- Learn about Jewish holidays through music and composition
- Use technology during recording sessions
- Build school community as we make one song with many verses, showing the students’ thoughts about Hanukkah miracles and freedom
Deadline: Sign up your child for the project before November 1 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students will then need to bring the lyrics to Gene by November 13.
Recording sessions with Gene will take place at the Lower School on November 28, 29, 30.
