Matisyahu (born Matthew Miller) is a Hasidic Jewish rapper and reggae artist.
Matisyahu infuses his lyrics with his Jewish spirituality, and is quickly becoming a favorite musician among Jews and non-Jews alike, (and even folks who normally wouldn't listen to reggae.)
Not to be confused with Harvey Magila, the Dancing Rabbi.
Power to Resist
Observant Jews are not permitted to turn electronic devices on or off during Shabbat. It is also forbidden to ask someone to do it for you, even a Shabbos goy. One may only imply or hint that they need a service performed for them, without directly asking.
Additionally, one may not deactivate an electronic device with voice commands or sound activation, even if no buttons are physically pushed.
One solution for turning on and off the light on Shabbat is the Kosher Lamp.
