Really cute video!
Their Chanukah video that went viral probably was mekarev lots of people. Now that they have a real fan club, the Purim one will prob be similarly successful.March 9, 2011 3:42 am at 3:42 am #747960observanteenMember

the video was well done, but im starting to get bored of their ‘orignality’ i mean itd be nice if they came up with something on their own for a change…March 9, 2011 3:45 am at 3:45 am #747962yossi z.Member
I was waiting for this to show up.
The whole point of the maccabeats is not a band in the manner that they have their own music and everything but rather to make songs into accapella and give it a twist

The macabeats made many Jews proud to be Jewish. More power to them!March 9, 2011 4:29 am at 4:29 am #747968TheGoqParticipant

GM, OP – who was it Mekarev??
I dont have facts and figures, but I think it made people aware of religious Jews, who might not have been before. Even if a tiny percentage of them thought about or looked into their roots because of that, that’s Kiruv of some sort.March 9, 2011 5:35 am at 5:35 am #747972abcd2Participant
to cshapiro: buy their cd it does have a few original songs and the songs they copy are nice as well. To geshmak man all I can say is hey you never know in terms of what effect the song might have in terms of kiruvMarch 9, 2011 6:21 am at 6:21 am #747973rebbitzenMember
pretty crazy..its been up for less than a day and they already have over 18,000 hits! …anyone know what song theyre using?March 9, 2011 3:50 pm at 3:50 pm #747976mikehall12382Member
regardless of what people say, Jews who otherwise would have never performed the Mitzvah of lighting a Menorah did…not many can say that had such an impact on yidishkyte…March 9, 2011 3:56 pm at 3:56 pm #747977mytakeMember
Sorry, doesn’t compare to the chanukah song. Not even close.March 9, 2011 4:03 pm at 4:03 pm #747979ItcheSrulikMember
I don’t like the music, but no one can deny that it brought a lot of people closer to Judaism, whether “just” lighting a menorah or something more permanent.
Just a halakhic caveat: The original song being parodied is kol isha so men should not go looking for it on youtube unless they use the minority heter for recorded music.March 9, 2011 4:17 pm at 4:17 pm #747980✡onegoal™Participant
It’s not bad but nothing is going to beat the Chanukah one.
