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.
You knew we love to sing, but did you know we could also cook? We combine our passions for Jewish food and Jewish pop-parody music in this year’s Hanukkah offering, “Latke Recipe.”
A parody of Walk the Moon’s infectious summer hit “Shut Up and Dance,” our sixth Hanukkah video leads the viewer through the steps of making delicious, crispy potato pancakes.
The traditional explanation for the custom of preparing latkes on Hanukkah is that we eat an oil-heavy food to celebrate the “single jar” of undefiled oil “that burned for eight days” after the Maccabees retook the Temple.
We celebrate this miracle and the joys of spending the holiday with loved ones in “Latke Recipe.”
Enjoy latkes responsibly!
