WATCH: Matisyahu Plays Surprise Concert at Jewish Summer Camp

— Reggae star Matisyahu gave a surprise concert to campers and staff at a religious Zionist summer camp in Pennsylvania.

Matisyahu showed up at the Bnei Akiva Camp Moshava in Honesdale, Pennsylvania, on Monday, where his children are campers, the Arutz-7 news website reported.

Among the songs Matisyahu performed were his hits “One Day,” “Sunshine,” and “Jerusalem.”

Before Matisyahu performed “Jerusalem,” which he performed in Spain last year while facing down anti-Israel protesters, one of the camp officials gave the campers a lesson in Zionism, according to the news website. He broke down when announcing Matisyahu would perform the song and was embraced by the star.
