Earlier this year, we asked the question, “Is One Direction’s Harry Styles Jewish’? After numerous tweets referencing Passover, singing the ma’nish ta’na, and Purim, it was safe to assume that young Styles had some connection to Judaism, but nothing could be confirmed.

Now, just a few months later, Styles was spotted at one of Manhattan’s most popular Kosher restaurants, Le Marais.

According to Algemeiner, several One Direction fans gathered outside the 46th street restaurant hoping to catch a glimpse of Styles inside. Not only was he eating at the Kosher establishment, he was also wearing a blue knitted kippa embroidered with his name, which was reportedly a birthday gift from friend, Ben Winston.

Styles’ father, Des, officially addressed the issue of his son’s Jewish ancestry on Twitter last month, writing, “Still lots of queries asking if H is some % Jewish? No idea where any rumors came from in but, categorically, he is 0% Jewish. Not at all.X”.

So, if Styles has absolutely zero Jewish connection, why is he celebrating all the Jewish holidays, getting a tattoo with his sister’s name written in Hebrew, and being gifted kippa’s for his birthday?

1D fans, some help please?
