Matisyahu Says Happy Hanukkah With iPad App

Matisyahu may have famously declared “No more Hasidic reggae superstar” on that fateful day in 2011 he sheared his long hair and peyot, but he hasn’t exactly found a solid footing in the wider music world in the intervening two years (See: “King Without a Beard,” David Meir Grossman’s dispatch from his tour this past summer). So it’s no surprise, really, that he’s returning to classics: Hanukkah, and his appeal as a reggae-singing Jewish dude.
