Matisyahu to Headline Jewish Life Festival

Matisyahu will be performing on the HUB lawn September 1, as the headliner for the Jewish Life Festival. The festival will be hosted by Chabad at Penn State, and will also feature kosher hot dogs, challah making, and other events celebrating Jewish culture. The festival is in its third year.

According to Rabbi Nosson Meretsky, the director of Chabad at PSU, the Jewish Life Festival “will include all aspects of Jewish life,” and also said that the festival was an “opportunity for Jews to meet Jews in a meaningful and enjoyable way.”

Matisyahu, a Hasidic Jew born in West Chester, PA, released his first album in 2004. His music can be described as reggae with hip-hop and ska influences. Along with English, Matisyahu’s lyrics also make use of Yiddish and Hebrew.
