Intermission: An A Capella Hanukkah

by Megan Greenwell

December 21, 2011

Hanukkah starts tonight at sundown, which means it's time for another video from everybody's favorite all-male Orthodox Jewish a capella group. The Maccabeats, the a capella group from Yeshiva University that created a YouTube sensation last year with its Hanukkah-themed cover of Taio Cruz's "Dynamite" (the song has more than 6.3 million views on YouTube) has a new song called "Miracle."

"Miracle" is a cover of formerly Hasidic reggae artist Matisyahu's song of the same name. There are no custom lyrics this year—the original song was written for Hanukkah—but the beat is equally catchy to "Dynamite." And the video even features a cameo from Blossom-turned-Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik, who is helping the group raise money for a national bone marrow donation drive.

Happy Hanukkah, GOODies.
