Solomon heir Sean Paul heads to Rishon Popular Jamaican reggae singer and dance-hall artist Sean Paul has announced he's heading our way in June for a one-time performance at Rishon Lezion's Amphipark. His world tour will make a stop here on June 28. Mosh Ben Ari will open the show at 8:30p.m. Sean Paul Ryan Francis Henriques, 34, known professionally by his first names, was born in Kingston, Jamaica to a Jewish father (whose Portuguese family emigrated to Jamaica in the 17th century) and his mother, a Chinese Jamaican. In line with his Sephardic heritage, he was a pupil at the island's Hillel Academy, a non-religious school funded by the local Jewish community. He claims to be a direct descendant of King Solomon through his father. Many members of Sean Paul's family are swimmers. He played for the national water polo team from the age of thirteen to 21. However, he gave up the sport in order to launch his musical career, which started to attract audiences in the United States in 1999. Since then, he has sold millions of records, toured with Mariah Carey, and collaborated with singers such as Beyonce, Blu Cantrell and Rihanna. Dr. Appelfeld, if you please Tel Aviv University will bestow an honorary doctorate upon author and Holocaust survivor Aharon Appelfeld in a celebratory ceremony that will take place in the Smolarz Auditorium at TAU on Sunday, May 13. The University Senate decided to award Appelfeld a doctorate in philosophy due to "his courageous heart and strength of spirit throughout his journey of survival as a young boy during the Shoah; his growth into one of the most important authors in the world; his singular contribution to Israeli culture as an outstanding Hebrew language writer, both fruitful and beloved; his characters and storylines that capture the heart and have served as inspiration for academic research around the world; and for his wide-reaching and rich creations that have won him widespread recognition and have been translated into 26 languages..." Appelfeld, a professor at Ben Gurion University, has won critical and popular acclaim for books such as Badenheim 1939 and The Immortal Bartfuss. Most of his work focuses on Jewish life in Europe before and during World War II.
