  • Are Dreadlocks the New Peyos?

    by Rebecca Honig Friedman


    Though it may not be apparent, Jews and Rastafarians have quite a lot in common, and the dreadlock-sidecurl parallel isn’t even the half of it.
    The documentary Awake Zion explores the Jewish-Rastafarian connection in depth, but we wanted to know more. So we had the film’s director, Monica Haim, take us down to the world-famous, reggae record store Jammyland, where she shared her inspiration for the film and showed us what this shared tradition is all about.
    The segment’s running in the upcoming episode of TJC Movie Talk, but you can see it here first.
