Jewish Music + A Capella Phenomenon: The Maccabeats

Originally formed as a Yeshiva University student vocal group, since the breakout success of their 2010 “Candlelight” Hanukkah song parodying Taio Cruz’s hit “Dynamite, the Maccabeats have become a Jewish music and a cappella phenomenon with a massive fan base, over 20 million views on YouTube, numerous TV appearances, and four successful albums featuring traditional songs, pop hits, and their signature Jewish versions and mash-ups.  

Often traveling with little more than the shirts on their backs and the ties on their necks, the Maccabeats have entertained and inspired hundreds of audiences worldwide, from Alabama to New Zealand. Using nothing more than the unadulterated human voice, a clean-cut presentation and a little Jewish humor, this unique group of singers connects with fans of all backgrounds and agesThey’ve been invited to perform at Gracie Mansion by NYC’s mayor Michael Bloomberg and at the White House by President Barack Obama. 
 
The Maccabeats aren’t your grandfather’s synagogue choir, but their values and identity play an important part in what they do. Strongly committed to the philosophy of Torah u-Madda, the integration of traditional and secular wisdom, the Maccabeats perform an eclectic array of Jewish, American (Sephardic and Ashkenazic) and Israeli songs. Their breakthrough piece, Lecha Dodi, is the epitome of this synthesis, combining some of the most beloved words of Jewish liturgy with Leonard Cohen’s meaningful and melodic Hallelujah.  

Over the course of time, their adventures and opportunities imparted upon the Maccabeats an important lesson: with great a cappella comes great responsibility. It is with much humility and gratitude that the group takes the mission given to it and shares its music with the world.
