    Piamenta vs the lange reggae star

    Notice the difference between the way we respond to Yossi Piamenta and the way we respond to Matisyahu. Why is this? Very simple. Yossi Piamenta is an honest and decent man, a talented performer who like many creative people is an individualist, and as such can’t find a place in the traditional Chabad community per se. However, he has nothing but respect for the Rebbe while he continues to do his own thing and to serve Hashem in his own way. Never once did he claim to be a Chossid in the community sense (nor should he have, and nor… Read more »

    You sound very judgemental. What are you trying to accomplish by your tirade against another Jew? Why should Piamenta’s simcha serve as a springboard for your lashing out? Please think twice before you post negative words in a public forum.

    thanks and take care,

    I don’t need your thanks or your wishes. And the fact that you don’t even use a Jewish name shows me where you are coming from. It is time for us to raise our standards even if it means risking losing a person or two. If we start worrying about what every Evan or lange reggae singer thinks of us we will be Reconstructionist/Renewal with a kippa in 20 years. I see it happening already. And if that means using music to discuss problems, so be it. We need to clean house in many ways, and certain things connected with… Read more »

    Yossi, wishing you all t he best!
    I remember the first simchas beis hashoeva that you played at; as a young boy I was fascinated by how alive and big your guitar sounded. It was a big inspiration for me. After all these years, your music is still very much alive and amazing. Keep making people happy and Hatzlocha Rabba. Chaim
