Matt is Founder and Executive Director of Bible Raps, a nonprofit born from his desire to engage his Hebrew school classes on a deeper and more contemporary level. Bible Raps launched from his participation in the PresenTense Institute during the summer of 2007. Matt continued to further his Jewish education during his 2008 year of study at The Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem. Since its inception, Bible Raps has reached over 100,000 young Jews with Torah-rich performances in schools, Hillels, conferences and camps across the U.S. and abroad. Their teaching materials are being used in countless classrooms and teachers are currently being trained to be certified Bible Raps educators. In addition, over 25,000 Torah songs have been sold. In 2011, Matt was named by The New York Jewish Week in their ’36 Under 36’ list of talented young Jews to watch.
