Maccabeats Hanukkah Concert

Oshman Family JCC

With a massive fan base, over 20 million views on YouTube, numerous TV appearances and success with two albums, 2010's Voices From The Heights and 2012's Out Of The Box, Yeshiva University's student vocal group the Maccabeats is a Jewish music and a cappella phenomenon. 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 ages. Though the Maccabeats aren't your grandfather's synagogue choir, their ideology 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 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. The Maccabeats' unique offering has caught the eyes of numerous organizations and individuals throughout the world. They've played sold-out shows to thousands at JCCs, synagogues, Chabads, Hillels, jazz clubs, festivals, conventions and theaters across five continents and over thirty states and provinces. They've been invited to Gracie Mansion by NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg and to the White House by President Barack Obama. 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.
