To celebrate Israel’s 75th birthday, the Jewish Agency for Israel and Z3 Project partnered with Shaanan Streett, the frontman of Hadag Nahash, one of Israel’s most popular and influential hip-hop bands, to create a song that brings together the unique voices and diverse faces of the Jewish people in Israel and overseas. The project, which originated as part of our Partnership2Gether network, which connects Jewish communities around the world, invited Jews globally to submit lyrics that expressed what Israel at 75 meant to them.
Many of these messages were then incorporated into the lyrics of the song, performed by Streett and seven artists from all over the world who work in different languages. Artist and music producer Michael Cohen joined the production of the accompanying music video, which was also made accessible in sign language thanks to Israel’s Sign Now organization.
