Israelis You Should Know: Adi Ran

Name: Adi Ran

Age: 55

Known for: Ran is an Israeli singer and songwriter who has been called "the Bruce Springsteen of religious music."

About him: Born in 1961 in Ramat Gan, Israel, Adi Ran began performing music for the Israel Boy and Girl Scouts Federation. Soon, though, his performances were being enjoyed by audiences in Tel Aviv. His songs became more spiritual, and soon he created a new genre of Israeli music known as "Hasidic Underground."

Ran became famous in his homeland after his songs were used in a 2005 Israeli movie called Ushpizin. But before and since, he has been beloved by his music, which he has released on CDs, a DVD, and performs for throngs of fans who have likened him to the classic rock music that partially inspired his own spiritual songs.
