It’s Yom Kippur and fans are wondering whether singer Harry Styles is Jewish.

The holy day occurs annually on the 10th of Tishrei, the seventh month of the Hebrew calendar, and is centred on atonement and repentance.

This year, it’s being celebrated from the evening of October 4 to October 5 and many are observing Yom Kippur on social media.

Some old tweets have resurfaced that see Harry Styles honouring the Jewish holiday, and it’s sparked confusion about the singer’s religion.

Harry Styles’ old Yom Kippur tweets resurface

In the first tweet from 2011, Harry wrote: “It’s Yom Kippur tonight so just wanted to wish my Jewish followers well over their fast. Gemar Tov!!”

Two years later, in 2013, the singer then tweeted about the Jewish holiday again, and this time he appeared to be participating in the fast.

“Eating as much as I can now. Gonna be a ought 25 hours. My problem is I’m always hungry straight after Kol Nidre. Fast well everyone!” he wrote.

Is Harry Styles Jewish?

The 28-year-old is not Jewish and doesn’t belong to a specific religion.

In 2017, the singer was interviewed by Chelsea Handler who asked him if he believed in God, to which he replied “Wow,” clearly taken aback by the question.

“I mean, you seem kind of spiritual to me, like hippie spiritual. I didn’t know if you were religious,” the comedian then explained.

Harry agreed with her statement and said he considers himself to be “more spiritual than religious”.

“I’m not super tied in to certain rules but I think it’s naive to say nothing exists and there’s nothing above us or more powerful than us. I think that’s a little narrow-minded,” he continued.

The singer believes in Karma

In the same interview, the Watermelon Sugar singer said that he believes in karma.

“Are you one of those people who thinks everything happens for a reason?” Chelsea asked, to which he replied: “I definitely believe in karma.”

“I think ‘everything happens for a reason’ is a difficult one because there’s a lot of sh*t happening in the world that’s so unfair right now,” he continued.

“So it’s hard to look at that stuff and think, ‘Well, everything happens for a reason’,” Harry added before saying he “definitely thinks there’s something”.

“It’s not just us,” he claimed. “It’s kind of crazy to think that it’s just us. I’m not saying I believe in aliens, but you know what I mean”.

Harry then threw the question back at Chelsea, asking her if she’s religious, to which she said “No!” but agreed: “I believe in karma, in energy, I believe people make things happen because there’s too much magic.”

“But conversely, there’s so much sadness it’s hard to believe in what the reasoning behind everything is. Any person who has a brain thinks about it.”
