“I want to thank the Maccabeats for their outstanding performance. They just did an outstanding number for me — it was very brief — that said, “four more years.” It was good. I really liked it. So thank you.”

“The performance was absolutely amazing and my email-in box has been totally flooded with compliments and rave reviews — all for the Maccabeats. “Y’’all” are not only incredibly talented but you also have a dynamism and charisma which the audience can definitely feel! In word as well as song, the group was able to capture the hearts of everyone, from young to old and across the spectrum of Jewish belief. I don’t know enough ways to say thank you!!!”

“The Maccabeats partnership with the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation has been life saving! Swabbing at their concerts and raising funds to help support the processing of swab kits through the Judy Greenberg z”l Miracle Match Campaign has and will continue to change the lives of patients worldwide. The Maccabeats  understand that message and music can truly create miracles. It has been an honor to work with them and to be inspired by their dedication and talent. We are looking forward to continuing to save more lives together.”

“I wanted to express my sincere gratitude to you for participating in our Operation Teddy 2010 event at the Ronald McDonald House on Thursday December 9th, 2010. Your presence truly made the afternoon special, and meant so much to the children, who are battling pediatric cancer, and to their families.

Your group’s enthusiastic energy and wonderful voices filled the room with happiness and were the perfect accompaniment to the sufganiyot and teddy bears that the kids enjoyed so much. On behalf of the State of Israel, I wish you all the best and look forward to working with you again in the future. I am sure we will see many more amazing things from the now famous Yeshiva University Maccabeats.”
