Rabbi Matisyahu Devlin Speaking Engagement - Shabbat Dinner in Lauderdale by-the-SeaOne of eleven siblings, Matisyahu grew up in York, PA where he attended Catholic school through his senior year of high school. He also went to church for the first eighteen years of his life, where he was an altar boy and sang in the choir. After being expelled from school and getting into legal trouble, he found himself sleeping in a Starbucks in Manhattan. One night, Matisyahu met a Jewish teenager who would forever change his life. This boy told him that if his mother was Jewish, so was he! Nothing could take that away from him, not even baptism and Catholic schooling! Matisyahu then spent a few months learning in yeshiva. He left the observant lifestyle, but after spending several days in a coma, and several months at a campus Chabad House, he returned to study in yeshiva for five years. Matisyahu is now happily married with two beautiful children. After running a campus Chabad House with his wife for two years, he currently works at a yeshiva in Miami for young men who were not raised in observant Jewish homes or perhaps, like Matisyahu, didn't know they were Jewish at all.
