Alma Zohar: Out of Egypt

Israel as Home
This song by Israeli artist, Alma Zohar, criticizes current Israeli policy and public attitudes toward African refugees seeking safety in Israel in light of the history of the Jewish nation as a persecuted people. Referencing the story of the Exodus from Egypt and quoting verses from the Passover Haggadah, Zohar, a secular artist, employs religious sources and ideas to discuss political matters. In Hebrew with English subtitles, this song subtly raises questions of the way in which Jewish history, values and tradition shape Israel’s identity and politics.
