If you are a parent to young children, you may have heard the song “Baby Shark” about, oh, some 235,000 to 2.3 million times already. The 60-minute loop of the hit kid song (and dance) has, impressively but unsurprisingly, over 30 million views.

But now, there’s a Jewish version of this ear worm that’s equally annoy… I mean, catchy. Jewish a cappella group the Maccabeats have put out a parody of “Baby Shark” that’s guaranteed to get your kids excited about the holiest day of the week: Shabbat!

Called simply, “It’s Shabbat!” the song chronicles all the awesomeness of this holiday, including challah, yummy food, and every exhausted parents favorite Saturday afternoon activity: nap time. With adorable animation and a cute Shabbat-themed dance, it’s sure to get your kids dancing and singing this Friday (and every) evening!
