Shake Off the Dust... Arise is Matisyahu's debut album and was released October 28, 2004 by JDub Records. It fell out of print following his move to Epic Records, and would remain a collector's item until it was remastered and reissued in October 2010, sold exclusively through his official website.[3] The album is now widely available as a digital download through standard retailers, albeit with slightly modified cover art.[4] The album's name comes from the Hebrew liturgical poem "Lekhah Dodi" which is sung by most Jewish denominations in order to welcome the holy Sabbath, which in the poem is referred to as a bride. The original line in the "Lekhah Dodi" poem is "התנערי מעפר, קומי" (Heetna'ari meAfar... Kumee).
