The Maccabeats aren’t your grandfather’s synagogue choir, but according to them, their ideology and identity play an important part in what they do.
Originally formed in 2007 as Yeshiva University’s student vocal group, the Maccabeats have since emerged as both Jewish music and a cappella phenomena, with a large fan base, more than 20 million views on their YouTube channel, numerous TV appearances (including The Today Show), a visit to the White House to croon for President Obama, and proven success with three albums, 2010′s Voices From The Heights, 2012′s Out Of The Box and 2014′s One Day More.
Many of the Maccabeats got their musical starts at the Shabbat table and shul, places where they still perform. The Maccabeats have emerged as both Jewish music and a cappella phenomena. They perform an eclectic array of Jewish, American, and Israeli songs. They have played sold-out shows to thousands at JCCs, temples, synagogues, shuls, Chabads, Hillels, jazz clubs, festivals, conventions, and theaters across five continents and over thirty states and provinces.
The Maccabeats were such a hit last time they came to the J that we brought them back for two more shows! Lucky for us, they will be back at the J on Sunday, October 18, for two performances at 1:30pm and 4pm! It's not too late. Find out more and buy your tickets today!
