Rock Out With the Family to This Kid-Friendly Purim Jam

the maccabeats

Our favorite orally-fixated, Jewish-themed jam band the Macaroons played their new Purim song live for us on Facebook. Our social media editor Lior Zaltzman paid them a visit, and they gave us a fun holiday gift: A super fun songfest about Purim–with all the latest pop culture references. Plus, who doesn’t want to see some of the band members dressed up in silly outfits?

Here are some of my favorite lyrics (yes, they reference Star Wars):

“There’s a Jedi, take a look.
It’s Purim!

You can Rey or Kylo Ren.
Be a Princess, maybe Leia
Or your favorite hockey player

…It’s Purim!”
