It's that time of year. You know the one — when all the new, clever songs about Moses leading the Jewish people out of Egypt, sung to the tunes of pop songs, appear like buds on a warm spring…day. This time, the Jewish a capella group Y-Studs covered soundtrack hits from the movie The Greatest Showman. They reinvented it (in less than four minutes!) as a song called "The Greatest Passover." Of course. The group collaborated with award-winning musical producer and director of Pitch Perfect (and Pentatonix partner) Ed Boyer, and product sponsor, Manischewitz, to create Passover magic.

There's another Passover parody you need to watch. This one from Six13 takes on our fave sitcom, The Big Bang Theory.
The song is set to the tune of the show, and the video captures the…deliciously nerdy vibe of The Big Bang Theory, a show about what happens scientists are roommates and love enters into the picture. (And you know, Mayim Bialik is one of the characters, which makes it a million times more awesome). The tune expertly sums up pretty much the whole story of Passover in under 30 seconds —… >> Read More
Yes, I'm Jewish. And I love it. But I also have some serious Easter candy envy.

Who doesn't love a good Larry David joke? Well, now the Jewish a capella group, Six13, made a Passover video that parodies David's famous (or is that infamous?) HBO show, Curb Your…Enthusiasm. "Curb Your Passover" impressively captures the series' characters (no small feat considering the general lack of costumes), jokes, and kvetchy vibe. There's even a kugel that's — you guessed it — prettay, prettay, prettay good. The Larry David wig is too much for us to handle — in the best way possible. Check it… >> Read More
If you're a rabid Game of Thrones — and who isn't? — you're going to love this new Passover video by Jewish a capella group Six13.
It's a total revamp of the GOT theme song, complete with a…Jon Snow lookalike and a Hodor who says "maror, maror." Whether you're a Stark or Bolton, a Targaryen or a Lannister, everyone should watch and listen to the clip below. And remember: Pesach is coming. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZ9M9d5k7uA&feature=youtu.be >> Read More
