Matisyahu attended the Jewish school located in a synagogue, White Plains. He spent much of his childhood learning the principles of Judaism, but when he was a teenager, Matisyahu began to rebel against his rigid upbringing.

He was involved in drug abuse and dropped out of White Plains Senior High School. Matthew had become a self-proclaimed Phish Head. So, he took hallucinogens and followed the rock band Phish on tour. Matisyahu attended a two-month program at Alexander Muss High School in Hod Hasharon, Israel.

The program offers students first-hand exploration of Jewish heritage as a way to solidify Jewish identity. After finishing Muss, he returned to New York, where he subsequently dropped out of high school after the first day of his senior year to travel to the United States. This was followed by a stint in a rehabilitation center in upstate New York.

Miller then went on an Oregon wilderness expedition for teenagers. ‘It wasn’t necessarily drug rehab, but that was part of why I was out there,’ he explained to a reporter from The Jewish Daily Forward in 2008. He finished high school on a wilderness program in Bend, Oregon.


Matisyahu married his wife Talia Dressler in his backyard on May 19, 2019. The two met when Talia was a NYU student interviewing him for a documentary about men and women avoiding skin contact. They were created by Rabbi Dov Yonah Korn, NYU Chabad chaplain, and began dating and married in 2004.

In 2014, Matisyahu confirmed that he had divorced his wife about two years earlier, but they remained on good terms and shared parenting responsibilities. However, they eventually got back together.

Matisyahu was in a relationship with his ex-girlfriend Toma Danley who gave birth to their daughter on April 2, 2014 in Portland, Oregon, where the newborn was diagnosed with a rare heart defect. Toma met in 1997 while he was attending a drug and alcohol recovery program in the wilderness in Bend, Oregon.


Matisyahu and Talia are blessed with three children Laivy (2005), Shalom and Menachem Mendel (2011). He also had a son named Sasha Lillian, who was born to his ex-girlfriend Toma Danley.

She gave birth to their daughter on April 2, 2014 in Portland, Oregon, where the newborn was diagnosed with a rare heart defect. Sasha underwent open heart surgery in May 2015 and another in January 2017. She reportedly recovered well. Sasha has lived with Danley since his birth.


Matisyahu has an estimated net worth of approximately $ 6 million as of 2020. This includes his assets, money and income. His main source of income is his career as a Jewish reggae singer, beatboxer and musician. Thanks to his various sources of income, Matisyahu has been able to amass a good fortune but prefers to lead a modest lifestyle.


One Day is a 20o9 song that was written and performed by Matisyahu as his first single after his other song Jerusalem (Out Of the Darkness Comes Light). The song was also included as a last minute song on Matisyahu’s album called Light.

According to reliable sources, the song expresses hope for an end to all kinds of violence and is also a prayer for a new ear of peace and understanding. It also appeared on the Modern Rock Chart at # 21 and # 38 on the US Rock Chart. The song is available on youtube and on all streaming platforms


King Without a Crown is a famous song written by Matthew from his original 2004 debut album entitled Shake off the Dust… Arise. A shorter edited version of the single was officially released in late 200. A live version of the song also appeared on her album called Live at Stubb’s (in Austin, Texas). The song wasn’t chosen at number twenty-eight on the Billboard Hot 100 and Modern Rock Tracks charts. Thus, it became one of Matisyahu’s greatest hits in his career as a musician. The song is available on YouTube and other streaming platforms.
