The Maccabeats continue their Hanukkah quest to make Jewish men feel ordinary:
After waking up at 5:00AM on Sunday for a live TV performance CBS 2, three members of Yeshiva University’s a cappella group proceeded to a kosher pizza shop in Long Island to help a young man propose to his fiancee. Whatever doubts the young lass may have harbored about her hubby-to-be’s singing were no match for the Maccabeats’ crooning.
The tape shows that the Maccabeats act with total menschlichkeit. While sharing some of their other hits–including their Lecha Dodi “Hallelujah”–they humbly wish Mazal Tov and state that they don’t want to overstay their welcome.
One engagement, three dancing babies and not a shred of debauchery. Michael Steinhardt, eat your Jewish future heart out.
P.S. Mazal Tov to the lucky couple! Five points if you name your first child “Maccabeat.”
