Harry Styles, star of uber-popular British boy band One Direction stopped by one of Manhattan’s most popular kosher hot-spots, Le Marais, Thursday night, much to the delight of his young female Jewish fans and others who gathered outside the 46th street establishment hoping to catch a glimpse of the star, fans on Twitter reported.

Styles sported a blue knitted kippa embroidered with his name, which was given to him as a birthday gift by his friend, director Ben Winston.

Despite possessing a Hebrew tattoo spelling his sister Gemma’s name and tweeting from time to time about Jewish holidays, Styles is not Jewish. Responding to inquiries on the matter, Des Styles, the star’s father wrote earlier this month on Twitter, “Still lots of queries asking if H is some % Jewish? No idea where any rumours came from in but, categorically, he is 0% Jewish. Not at all.X”

  • LOL those fellas are so crazy. Ahh what it would be like to be young and wild again. I sometimes feel a bit Jewish myself having so many friends that are. Hmmm maybe I am.

  • C S

    He looks stunning in a kippa!! Jewish or not Jewish, i think it’s a great thing. He’s a great guy, all of the boys are! And if he converts to Judaism, more power to him! Who are we to tell him he can’t?

  • bee

    Maybe he IS converting? You never know.

  • Steve

    Why can a gentile not show affection for Jews just for the sake of it. Kol Hakavod and thank you for showing some respect. We have enough enemies including the plethora of left wing Jews in the US.

      Amen to that!

  • K A

    awww so sweet!!

  • Sandy Brown

    He is having good fun. I think it is all harmless. He is young. He is just having a good time. Yes, and he is not like Roger Waters. Thank God.

  • Jane Kaja

    Guess some Jews will be having mental orgasms over this. In the end, it is meaningless, unless he is converting.

  • Efram Paul

    Much nicer gesture than our Nazi friend Pink Floyd

      You are so-o-o right!
