Nissim Black on Orthodox Judaism, hip-hop and more
Nissim Black has had a tumultuous journey — from his early days on the streets of Seattle where he was selling drugs by the age of 12, to a religious awakening that led him to Judaism and life in Israel.
Black is also a hip-hop artist who is using his music and lyrics to spread his faith and wisdom. -
He’s coming to Charlotte to tell his story as Hanukkah begins.
We talk to him about the lessons he’s learned along the way, and how he’s fit hip-hop into Judaism and used it as a way to reach others.
