A Big Bang Hanukkah: The Eighth Night!
Historically, Judaism has had some great debates. Whether at the end of the day you agree of Shamai or Hillel, one thing is for sure: Tonight is the 8th night of Hannukah! With all nine of the candles lit (who could forget about the Shamash?), we couldn't think of a better way to end the holiday with a bang than the cheer of YouTube's favorite Jewish cover-band, the Maccabeats!
Check out the Maccabeats hit Miracle here:
This Jewish all-star group seems to bring it all together: clever name, hilarious music, and a touch of retro flare! If you're one for pop culture, you can even catch a cameo by Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik! You'll recognize her as Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler on the hit NBC show. A bit of trivia from Team Ketubah: Mayim actually holds a real PhD in Neuroscience (just like she does on the show!).
An inspiration for all of Team Ketubah, the Maccabeats do it again with another catchy tune and a modern spin of a traditional classic. Last year's video Candlelight had over 6.3 million views, and there's still time to beat that before Hanukkah is over!
From the bold colors of their videos to creative artistic twists, we absolutely love the spontaneity and hilarity of every new Maccabeats video. We can't wait until the next one... we hope it comes before next year's Hanukkah!
Here's to hoping that you and your fiance enjoyed the holiday with a healthy portion of Latkes, but didn't let the oil stain too much! As we enter 2012, This Is Not a Ketubah wishes you and your fiance the best for the New Year-- and maybe days as exciting and bright as a Maccabeats video!
