I read this article in the paper this morning "Meet the man dubbed world's first Hasidic reggae superstar". Sadly on closer reading it appears that his religious tradition is a sexist one…
"alongside the pounding vocals - sometimes in Yiddish - and foot-stomping rhythms, he maintains a lifestyle devoutly at odds with those in the music business around him. He refuses to play on the Jewish Sabbath, eat non-kosher food, or compromise his religious ideals by playing alongside female artists." (my italics)
So much for him being a positive jewish role model.
