(EJNews) – Jewish National Fund Edmonton is pleased to announce a very exciting Tu Bi’Shevat Community celebration event – Rap N Roll – on Tuesday February 21, 2017 at the Provincial Museum of Alberta Theatre located at 12845 102 Ave. in Edmonton.
It may be freezing cold outside but the music and beats of internationally renowned rapper Nissim Black will bring warmth to the theatre and heat to the whole community. His message and his music is guaranteed to melt even the most frigid temperatures.
Proceeds from the Rap N Roll event will benefit a world-class animal-assisted therapy program at Retorno – the International Jewish Centre for Prevention and Treatment of Addictions. It has a remarkable program that uses a therapeutic relationship with animals as a proven way to treat alcohol and drug abuse, primarily helping teens. Providing animal care teaches young people responsibility, empathy and empowers inner self-confidence and healing. Caring for animals fosters an improved self-image, allows for small victories and requires a need to maintain a disciplined schedule, all of which are essential for the rehabilitation of abusers. Retorno transforms the lives of its patients and prepares them to re-enter Israeli society.

The evening will begin with a sushi and craft beer/sake reception from 6-7 pm sponsored by KIWI KOSHER SUSHI and MOLSON COORS. Jewish music sensation Nissim Black will then take the stage in a concert style performance in the Old Provincial Museum Theatre at 7 pm.
Nissim will inspire through his personal story and the music that is making him so popular worldwide. The event will wrap up with a post-concert reception, refreshments provided by PEPSI and a wide range of snacks sponsored by SOBEYS (Lewis Estates).
Nissim Black, a very popular Jewish rapper from Israel is aiming to help people living in Edmonton to reenergize and enjoy their Jewish cultures and traditions. The concert will support Jewish Continuity through rhythm and poetry by creating a fun and innovative event for our community members to express their excitement about being Jewish.
