Reggae Artist Matisyahu to Perform on HUB Lawn
Matisyahu is coming back to Penn State in a couple weeks to perform an accoustic set at the HUB as part of the Penn State Jewish Life Festival. Matisyahu, best known for his unique use of reggae, and hip-hop to share traditional Jewish themes, will headline the concert on September 8.
According to Rabbi Nosson Meretsky, there will be Challah making, a Shofar Factory, a Jewish Scribe, and kosher hot dogs at the festival. According to Rabbi Meretsky this year there will also be more tables with Jewish Festival information and activities. Due to the construction taking place on HUB lawn, the stage will be in upper right, rather than lower left, of the lawn. This change will allow people from both sides to be able to hear the performance and create two areas for tables and booths.
Matisyahu performed at last years Jewish Life Festival. Check out video from last year’s event below.
