Jewish reggae rapper Matisyahu knows where he's welcome.

Following last month's headline-making boycott effort of the American singer at Spain's Rototom Sunplash Festival, the subsequent backtrack and his eventual performance in front of a sea of Palestinian flags, Matisyahu high-tailed it for Israel where he made an impromptu appearance at the closing of Jerusalem's Season of Culture's Sacred Music Festival at the Tower of David Museum.

Now, he's returning over Succot with his full band to raise a giant middle finger at the BDS movement with a show at the capital's Sultan's Pool on October 10. Tickets start at NIS 175 and are available via Bimot or *6622.
