Matisyahu, The Reggae Superstar Now Unbearded


Matisyahu is known to be the most chasidic Jew in the world. He is most popular to have that full beard, payos, black kippah, black hat and black coat. He shocked the whole world Tuesday morning when he posted a Twitter pic of himself beardless saying “all you get is me… no alias.”

In his official website, he wrote the following:

This morning I posted a photo of myself on Twitter.

No more Chassidic reggae superstar.

Sorry folks, all you get is me…no alias. When I started becoming religious 10 years ago it was a very natural and organic process. It was my choice. My journey to discover my roots and explore Jewish spirituality—not through books but through real life. At a certain point I felt the need to submit to a higher level of religiosity…to move away from my intuition and to accept an ultimate truth. I felt that in order to become a good person I needed rules—lots of them—or else I would somehow fall apart. I am reclaiming myself. Trusting my goodness and my divine mission.

Get ready for an amazing year filled with music of rebirth. And for those concerned with my naked face, don’t worry…you haven’t seen the last of my facial hair.

– Matisyahu

This decision of Matisyahu has been made because he is “reclaiming” himself”. Comments poured out from his webpost and majority of it were all-out support. “matis, you are an amazing artist, no matter what form (or lack of) your hair takes ~ you are LOVED!,” says Jeannie, one of the hundreds who placed comments in his website.
