Aviad Cohen began his musical career in the early 2000s as “50 Shekel,” a Jewish rapper, who put his focus on writing contemporary music for Jewish people that did not resort to rhyming “marijuanica” with “Channukah.” Rob and Aviad talk about their journeys from Judaism to Yeshua, Jewish tradition, and Harry Potter.

LAST WEEK’S CONTEST IS STILL ON! Win one of 3 digital copies of John Tibbs’ worship album “Origins.” Listen to last week’s podcast to find out more!

Notable Quote: “Nobody is representing [the Jewish people]. I am the one. God decided. God decided, ‘I give you this creativity, and I need you to go and revamp Judaism.’” – Aviad Cohen, as ’50 Shekel,’ before he came to Christ

Aviad Cohen is a talented, Jewish songwriter, currently living in Boise, Idaho, who writes songs for Yeshua Ha Mashiach (Jesus Christ).

(1) Tell us how you came to Christ

Israeli born Jew, moved to Brooklyn NY at age 2. Raised in Conservative Judaism, went to Conservative and Orthodox Jewish schools and Yeshivas. Grew up and got into New Age and other things. Later launched a career as 50 Shekel, a Jewish rapper, which turned into an overnight online sensation. Was being groomed by Orthodox Rabbis in NYC to become an Orthodox Jewish example to the Jewish community at large. I was realizing that the Judaism I was raised in all my life was predominantly focused on man-made tradition and pretty much void of God’s Word, especially the book of Prophets in the Tanakh (Old Covenant) which share a lot of prophecy about the Messiah. God used believers to contact me online at my website (including Jews For Jesus, whom I later met) and people shared the Good News with me and inspired me to read the Bible.

A few supernatural situations occurred. Yeshua revealed Himself to me in a huge personal way. I read the Bible and prayed to God to reveal His truth to me, repented of my sins, surrendered my life to Him, got mikvah’d (baptized) and have been a follower of Yeshua Messiah for over 5 years now. It’s not easy walking the narrow path but I thank god for His grace that He extends towards me. When I fall, I repent and get back up again and hold on to His promises.

I have made three evangelically driven albums within the past 4 years and

Steve serves in the U.S. Air Force, is on fire for God, and has a desire to bring strong, intense, and effective Hip Hop worship to the Christian community. Please join me in praying for him and his music ministry.

(1) Twitter Testimony (limit your testimony to 140 characters)

Was raised mostly without religion and did not become a Christian until meeting my wife

(2) Well, that certainly calls for more information… tell us more.

I haven’t always been a Christian. My parents got divorced when I was seven. From the ages of seven to thirteen my mother, sister, and I moved once or twice a year throughout central California until we finally found a home in Sonora.

We tried a few churches here and there along the way, but after some fallouts we ended up not going at all. As far as I was concerned, through high school, the two years of college I completed before joining the Air Force, and for the first half of my military career God did not exist. As a matter of fact, one of my college papers was about how society in general used religion as a crutch to aid in the reality that there is no purpose to our lives.

It was not until I met my wife four years later that I realized how wrong I was. It is largely because of her persistent belief that I would come to Christ that I can stand before you a Christian today.
