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.
They’re so cute and geshmak!
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…
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
😀 Zuberman! 😀
The chanuka song has more then 4.7 milion hits!!
Anybody has the link for the purim song?
OP – who was it Mekarev?? And to what? Light Chanuka Licht for 8 days and then???
And to copy such a Goyish tune??
The macabeats made many Jews proud to be Jewish. More power to them!
just saw it , very cute , love the kids, the song was ok
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.
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 kiruv
pretty crazy..its been up for less than a day and they already have over 18,000 hits! …anyone know what song theyre using?
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…
Sorry, doesn’t compare to the chanukah song. Not even close.
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.
It’s not bad but nothing is going to beat the Chanukah one.
