OMG i LUV the MACCABEATS!!May 8, 2011 3:46 am at 3:46 am #764961
well they take non jewish songs and change the words so if thats what you consider kosher than…….May 8, 2011 3:48 am at 3:48 am #764962
they are using secular tunes, so they may not pass the yeshivish sniff test.May 8, 2011 3:50 am at 3:50 am #764963
My sister says it is modern… referring to songs like One Day. (Oddly, my extremely yeshivish brother’s favorite song, ever.)May 8, 2011 3:51 am at 3:51 am #764964

So does MBD.

and uncle moishe…May 8, 2011 4:18 am at 4:18 am #764966
These young men are students at Yeshiva University which is not
“yeshivish”. It is a modern orthodox institution of higher learning. The whole world is not “yeshivish, or chasidishe, or any one type of Jew. We are all Jews. Children of HaShem. Boys, girls, Women and Men. Get over yourselves.May 8, 2011 4:25 am at 4:25 am #764967
I second WaltonMay 8, 2011 4:40 am at 4:40 am #764968
I completely agree that women, men, yeshivish, chassisdish, MO even HUC are all perfectly Jewish (ok, the last depending on conversions). But we don’t all dress the same or listen to the same music unfortunately. Hence is maccabeats appropriate for yeshivish people to listen to?May 8, 2011 4:46 am at 4:46 am #764969May 8, 2011 4:55 am at 4:55 am #764970
i agree with walton too- stop labeling! its music period if u dont want to listen to it fine- but dont start labeling everythingMay 8, 2011 3:30 pm at 3:30 pm #764971
I was JJ about My thread…I actually Dont Think Its so Nice….I was once in a dep. dtore and i heard the song that they used and it really wasnt too nice….May 8, 2011 4:15 pm at 4:15 pm #764972
I Loooooooooooooooooooove the Maccabeats, though their disc songs rnt as good as Chanuka, Purim and One day!!!its gr8 for SefiraMay 8, 2011 5:04 pm at 5:04 pm #764973
Are you drawing the line then between whom one may listen to, who one may speak to, etc. etc.? How do you know who here is yeshivish, chareidi or modern when you post a question or ask for advise. How do you know who is influencing you? Shall we each compartmentalize and go to our own corners? Should YU boys not listen to Avremel or MBD? There was a time when you couldn’t tell what MBD was. Should one be so selective that they only listen to one form of music, made in their own circles?
Well then if I went according to your thinking women should only listen to women’s music and not men’s CD’s.May 8, 2011 5:12 pm at 5:12 pm #764974
aries-PB was trying to say that some people feel that such music isnt right for them to listen to. they dont lets say listen to non jewish music at all so why listen to the same song just with different words? to them its not really considered jewish music. but maybe other people with other views on things think its ok for them. let everyone do what they want!May 8, 2011 5:42 pm at 5:42 pm #764975
aries: to be honest, I was just trying to stimulate discussion. I have 5 assignments due over the next few days, i reward myself by checking YWN – CR.May 8, 2011 9:59 pm at 9:59 pm #764976
Some discussions are offensive and tick of off many people because it shows a lack of ahavas yisroel. We have been through the ringer on many of these type of discussions and many people felt very hurt by them. Everyone has a right to do as they please, so by all means…… But when you start such a discussion it can be a dig and a nudge to start a controversial debate and cook people up for no reason at all. Good luck on your assignments.May 8, 2011 10:46 pm at 10:46 pm #764977
Thanks Aries. I’ll try to use fewer proper nouns in titles.
