Yoni Reinharz talks to us winning a reality TV series and opening up the Twin Cities’ first real Jamaican restaurant. Did we mention he raps with Matisyahu?

JOSH NELSON IS COMING!!!

Josh freaking Nelson is coming to town. And not just anywhere – he’s coming to MY SYNAGOGUE! I keep hearing people describe him as dreamy (he’s not bad looking), and talented (1000% true – the man is musically gifted) – but for me, his arrival is like coming home to my Jewish happy place.

Win Tickets To Matisyahu at First Ave [Updated]

Live at Stubbs, the album that put Matisyahu on the map, came out in 2005. I remember being at camp that summer and hearing it on every stereo throughout the whole grounds.

The beats were hip, the hooks infectious, and every song seemed to hit the sweet spot between Jewish enough for a rabbi and dope enough for a teenager.
