faith video: 'Maccabeats' singing group's Hanukkah video goes viral
Today is the last day of Hanukkah, the eight day festival of lights celebrated by Jews around the world. This year, the Maccabeats, a student and alumni singing group from Yeshiva University in New York, has extra reasons to celebrate, as reported in the Wall Street Journal.
The Maccabeats' tongue-in-cheek video re-enactment of the Hanukkah story, "Candlelight," sung to the tune of the pop song "Dynamite" by Taio Cruz, has gotten well over 2 million views since its release a couple of weeks ago.
Watch the Maccabeats' YouTube video below, and let the toe tapping and head bopping begin.
The song is also available for purchase on iTunes.
