Looking to book the Maccabeats? Want to ask them a question or come to your community next? Shoot them an email, you’ll hear back before you can flip a latke.
Is it still a cappella if we used cups and a table for percussion? Either way, we’re proud to present our latest pop-adaptation: we put the lyrics of “D’ror Yikra,” a traditional Shabbat-table song, to the tune of “Cups,” recently popularized by the movie Pitch Perfect.
According to one interpretation, the opening line of the song, “D’ror Yikra,” calls upon us to take advantage of Shabbat, the spiritual day of rest, and free ourselves from the mundane world. Learn more about this song of medieval origin here.
Nothing would make us happier than knowing that you sing our version of “D’ror Yikra” at your own Shabbat tables!
