Maccabeats wish you a happy Chanukah

By Jenna Johnson

The Maccabeats -- a Jewish a cappella group at Yeshiva University -- did a fabulous remake of Taio Cruz's "Dynamite." It's called "Candlelight" and here's my favorite line: "I flip my latkes in the air sometimes. Sayin ayy ohh. Spin the dreidel." Enjoy!

Earlier this semester I wrote a story about college a cappella groups, and am still addicted to watching their You Tube videos.

Special thanks to Melissa Bell of BlogPost, who told me about this video!

In case you are looking for even more holiday music to cheer up your afternoon, the Post's On Faith suggests a number of Hanukkah songs and videos. Enjoy!

Thank you for posting this! I just stumbled on it (my kids are in college), and loved it. I subscribed to Uri Westrich's YouTube page just to hear the Maccabeats. Great find!
