Matisyahu Performs Acoustic Show at Camp Solomon Schechter

A clean-shaven Matisyahu returned to Camp Solomon Schechter in Olympia, Washington, to spend the shabbat and perform an intimate evening acoustic concert. Below is video of him performing his hit song, “One Day.” As it was a year ago, video of the entire 103-minute concert is also available on YouTube.

The 32-year-old reggae rapper made waves late last year when he shaved off his beard, shedding the “Chassidic reggae superstar” label in the process while not abandoning the Jewish faith he fully embraced as a 19-year-old as some initially feared. A question about the beard was bound to come up during the Q&A with campers and he handles it rather gracefully.
