Hadag Nahash

Hadag Nahash, the Israeli hip-hop/funk band, will rock the Greater Philadelphia community on Dec. 4, at 7:30 p.m., at Congregation Rodeph Shalom, 615 North Broad St., in Center City.

The concert is sponsored by PhillyIsrael — a nonprofit organization that helps create and facilitate cultural, educational and social programming for American and Israeli Jews throughout Greater Philadelphia — and Congregation Rodeph Shalom.

The band has topped the Israeli music charts for more than 15 years, offering audiences a fusion of musical styles including hip-hop, funk, jazz, electro and rock with a touch of Middle Eastern flavor.

Their songs call for peace, tolerance and equality.

With its six successful albums to date, the group has been compared to Philadelphia’s “The Roots.” Hadag Nahash has shared the stage with the Black Eyed Peas and Cypress Hill and has contributed their music to Adam Sandler’s movie You Don’t Mess With the Zohan.

Proceeds from the concert will benefit Ahava Village in Kiryat Bialik, Israel, a center for at-risk youths.

Tickets are $35 per person for general admission; students with ID pay $15. Groups of 10 or more receive a $5 per person discount. VIP tickets are $75 per person and include a reception with the band and reserved seats for the concert. Purchase them at: www.phillyIsrael.com.
