Bob Dylan a Chabadnik?

Bob Dylan’s religious journey has been a passing interest for his cult following of fans. It looks like the former Robert Zimmerman, once a born-again Christian, is again a Torah-reciting (though I doubt -observant) Jew.

While in Atlanta for a September 22 concert with Elvis Costello and Amos Lee, Dylan (ne Robert Zimmerman) attended the Chabad-Lubavitch of Georgia’s Yom Kippur services, where he was called up to the Torah and recited the blessings in Hebrew, the organization reported.

How great would Dylan look with sidelocks?

(By the way, if my wife gives it another two months, my hair will look just like that.)
