Using nothing more than the unadulterated human voice, a clean-cut presentation, and a little Jewish humor, this unique group of singers is able to connect with fans of all backgrounds and ages. Originally formed in 2007 as Yeshiva Universityís student vocal group, the Maccabeats have recently emerged as both Jewish music and a cappella phenomenon, †with a large fan-base, more than 20 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 arenít your grandfatherís 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, the Maccabeats perform an eclectic array of Jewish, American, and Israeli songs.
