Beardless Matisyahu Shocked The World


The world used to see him in full beard, payos, black kippah, black hat and black coat. Matisyahu, born Paul Miller is the world’s most famous and visible chasidic Jew who blends traditional Jewish themes with reggae, rock and hip hop beatboxing sounds.

He posted a picture of himself in his twitter account Tuesday morning beardless and seems to be undergoing a whole new unknown religious path that he needed to shed his appearance. He then updated his blog few hours after posting the picture in twitter saying that he’s reclaiming himself, “trusting my goodness and my divine mission.”

He posted the following in his blog:

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

His fans all over world showed him support and would still be adoring him whatever he may look like.
