By Micah Halpern
Monday August 1, 2011
I've Been Thinking:
Popular culture is sometimes a key to understanding politics and foreign affairs.
Justin Bieber made a trip to Israel in May. The teen pop music sensation from Canada wanted to walk where Jesus walked. And indeed, Bieber is a devout Christian who admitted to praying before his performances in Hebrew and in English.
Yup, Justin Bieber prays in Hebrew.
That's not all. Bieber has, to use the correct lingo, a tat - for the over the hill gang, he has a tattoo. And the tat is in Hebrew.
The message of the holy land resonates for young people across the world.
The Jewish people in their ancestral homeland, connecting, walking, living in the cities of the Bible is, for many people, an inspiration and a vehicle to better understand the Bible in today's world.
Justin Bieber is a cultural icon. He has an enormous impact on an entire generation. This trip to Israel and these prayers in Hebrew and Justin's Hebrew tat are priceless tools presenting Israel's message to today's youth in a positive, vibrant and awesome way.
