In ‘Unsettling,’ Leftist Filmmaker Embeds in a West Bank Settlement
BY ROSANNE SKIRBLE for Moment
Founded in 1976, Tekoa is one of the oldest Jewish settlements on the West Bank. About an hour’s drive from Tel Aviv, it is a world apart, isolated in the Judean Hills and surrounded by Arab villages. Tekoa is a small town whose settlers wrestle with the ongoing controversy about their right to live there. But politics isn’t the only driver that brings people here. Residents say Tekoa is a good place to raise a family and are attracted to the sense of community and affordable lifestyle. Many residents have lived there all their lives.
Meet Zoolod, a Jewish and Arab Israeli hip-hop duo
By Rebecca Stadlen Amir
Hailing from the city of Lod, the duo writes and performs music together that ignores politics and focuses on their passion for rap.
Teddy Neguse and Anan Hafaga are best friends with two different personalities and backgrounds. They form a rap duo called Zoolod.
Growing up in Lod, where the group gets its name, Teddy was from a Jewish Ethiopian family and Anan from a Muslim Arab family. They met in high school and bonded over a shared appreciation for music.
