Our favorite Jewish a cappella group, The Maccabeats, are back. This time, they covered “What I Am,” which was originally performed by will.i.am and Sesame Street. The video was filmed on an ordinary day at Camp HASC in New York City, which is a Jewish camp for kids with special needs. What more do you want?
