Boy Band Superstar Harry Styles Celebrates Chanukah, Doesn’t Understand Dreidel
Gentile heartthrob, Harry Styles, is again tweeting about his participation in Jewish holiday rituals. This time in honor of Chanukah which begins Wednesday night.
“Love the Doughnuts and Latkes,” Styles tweeted.
“Just never understood the point of a dreidel,” he added.
In August, Styles was spotted leaving a Manhattan kosher eatery, and in September, hours before the start of the Yom Kippur high holiday, he wished his followers an easy fast.
The popular One Direction singer’s habit of tweeting Jewish themes, has led some to speculate that he may be Jewish. However, the notion was categorically shot down earlier this year by his father, Des Styles, who said that Harry “is 0% Jewish.”
Harry’s interest in Judaism was explained by his friend, film director Ben Winston, in a recent interview.
“All the boys love Judaism. They are fascinated by it and they enjoy the family atmosphere. Over the years they have become part of our family really and are interested in what we do,” he said.
