Maccabeats are one of the world’s premier a cappella singing groups.

The Maccabeats perform an eclectic array of Jewish, American, and Israeli songs.

Originally formed in 2007 as Yeshiva University’s student vocal group, the Maccabeats have recently emerged as both Jewish music and a cappella phenomena, with a large fanbase, more than 10 million views on YouTube, numerous TV appearances, and proven success with two albums, 2010′s Voices From The Heights and 2012′s Out Of The Box.
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. 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.
