The Yeshiva Maccabeats
This popular, all-male a cappella group from Yeshiva University has been taking the country by storm, drawing international attention for its eclectic range of Jewish, American and Israeli songs that often combine Jewish liturgy set to the tunes of contemporary musical artists. Delighting audiences with the traditional and secular wisdom they bring to their music, the Maccabeats produce a unique blend of musical genres and styles, as well as intricate harmonies, thumping beatbox rhythms and stunning lead vocals. They bring their energy, style and spirit to every performance and appeal to music lovers of all ages.
The Maccabeats have headlined in concert halls across the country, including Madison Square Garden; have generated more than six million hits on YouTube; and performed at the White House last spring at a reception in honor of Jewish American Heritage Month, where President Obama personally thanked them for "their outstanding performance." Hit songs include Hanukkah, Candlelight, Lecha Dodi, and Dynamite. Their first album, Voices from the Heights, was released in 2010. They have also released a number of music videos including Purim Song, Book of Good Life and most recently, Miracle.
This concert has been generously underwritten by an anonymous donor so that all proceeds can benefit programs for senior adults at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades.
