JTA — In what seems like a bid to become even more popular among Jewish tweens of the female persuasion, Harry Styles of the band One Direction paid a visit to the Manhattan kosher restaurant Le Marais on Aug. 22, The Algeminer reports.

The British hearthrob was even wearing a kipah — a blue knitted number embroidered with his name. According to Twitter, it was a birthday gift from director friend Ben Winston.

While Styles, who sports a Hebrew tattoo (Jemma, the name of his older sister) and occasionally tweets in Yiddish, is obviously quite philosemitic, he is not in fact Jewish.
