Matisyahu To Perform During Tisha B'Av Fast
It looks like that the transition of Jewish reggae star "Matisyahu" is still not complete.
The star went from being a secular Jew several years ago, to becoming an ultra Orthodox Jew. However recently he started to change back towards being a secular Jew.
It seems like his transition was progressing slowly. At first he shaved off his signature beard. He commented at the time the he just shaved his beard, but he will still be wearing his kippah or Jewish skullcap and not become a secular Jew. Recently he appeared to become completely secular.
Now he is slipping towards insanity by an alarming rate.
He chose to perform in a concert on the saddest day of the year for Jews. On the 9th day of the Jewish month of Av, the first and second Temples were destroyed, leading to the exodus of Jews from Israel, many thousands of years ago.
