Passover is nearly here! And if you've been anxiously awaiting a fresh new parody video to celebrate, Jewish a cappella group Six13 — the singers who brought us the recent Hanukkah hit, "Bohemian…Chanukah" — has got you covered. This years' tune is "A Lion King Passover," and it's a medley of songs from the Disney animated movie-turned-Broadway show (and soon to be live action film).

Midge Maisel, though fictitious, is many, many things. She's a woman, a comedian, a mom (maybe not a great one, but that's OK), a Jew, a daughter, and so much more.
