Fans know Perry Farrell as a singer from the alternative rock band Jane’s Addiction, but few know that he was born into a Jewish family and his real name is Peretz Bernstein. And quite a revelation for many was the fact that recently he began to study the works of the Rebbe King Moshiach.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, the musician said that one of his heroes is the great Lubavitcher Rebbe:
Who are your heroes?
One of my heroes currently is the great [Hasidic rabbi Menachem Mendel] Schneerson. His writings and his teachings are amazing. I’ve been reading them like crazy lately.
Would you call yourself a Lubavitcher?
I’m a love-bavitcher. I don’t know what you call it. I’m just in love with the study. I study through the night. I don’t sleep more than three hours at a time. I’d like to change that.
