Israeli star Gad Elbaz has joined forces with American hassidic rap star Nissim Black to remake his famous hit Hashem Melech, and the hit collaboration comes for a good cause - to support the family of a terror victim.

Nissim Black, a successful Seattle rapper, took a break from his rap career in 2011 to focus on his Orthodox conversion to Judaism, and came back a year later with a renewed passion and message.

Now Black and Elbaz have combined their talents in Hashem Melech 2.0 - a powerful new rendition of Elbaz's Hashem Melech (God is King), filmed amid the breathtaking vistas of New York City.

The new music video is leading a crowdfunding campaign that has been joined by CauseMatch.com and Aish HaTorah, to raise funds for the seven children and widow of Rabbi Reuven Biermacher, who was tragically murdered by an Arab terrorist near the Yafo Gate of Jerusalem's Old City last December 23.

The goal of raising $1 million for the grieving family that has lost its sole provider has already reached just over 36% of its goal as of Wednesday morning (Israeli time). To donate click here.

Elbaz and Black look to continue their successful collaboration on March 20, as they hold a massive Purim concert at Brooklyn College.
