Rockin’ the Latke

Rockin’ the Latke

The a capella group the Maccabeats premiered their newest release, “Latke Recipe,” on The group, which formed when the members were students at Yeshiva University, has four albums out already; their website describes the Maccabeats as not “your grandfather’s 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.

The release was reported, including the video, on the Jewish Daily Forward (“Your favorite Jewish a cappella boys are back — and they’ve brought a frying pan.”). The song is a parody of the Walk the Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance,” and it includes a latke recipe. Watch it here:

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
