Cultural Odd Couple

From the Jewish website, an account of something that looks like an interesting multicultural experience.
JNF looks to the future with MC Hammer

Jewish National Fund’s Future Party in Toronto features American rap musician, with proceeds going toward development of sports field in Israel’s Kibbutz Hahotrim

The Jewish National Fund (JNF) has come a long way since the days its Blue Box (pushke) was its most recognizable feature. While the JNF continues to build Israel today, it also continues to have an eye to the future.

So, it should come as no surprise that on Thursday, September 22, the JNF will be holding its Future Party – featuring a talented musical icon, and a man who made balloon pants look good, MC Hammer, at Toronto’s Corus Quay (25 Dockside Drive).

Proceeds raised from the Future Party will go toward the development of a sports field at the Yafit Park complex in Kibbutz Hahotrim in the northern Carmel coast. The project will be an additional element in the park – a multi-functional sports field where the kibbutz residents can enjoy games of football, volleyball and basketball.
Hip hop (even from a fellow who peaked two decades ago) might not seem to go with things Jewish.

But hey, why not?
