Thus, the song pushes listeners to think beyond "Jewishness" as comprised of what critic Shirley Geok-lin Lim has called "ethnocentric figments" — "a wearisome rummaging for figures of speech, images, and phrase-making which point towards" ethnic identities Lim Maccabeats' songs like "All About That Neis" ask listeners to see Jewishness as centered upon a relationship with the divine and God's actions in human history. The need to move beyond Judaism as "ethnocentric figments" is a point brought home more explicitly by break-away group Stand Four's song " Eight Nights " in which they joke, "you can't go wrong making random Jewish references in a Chanukah song.
They sing, Hopefully This year will bring us happiness and peace Hopefully Sensitivity to others will increase Hopefully We'll open our eyes and think more consciously Cuz Hopefully We'll go from where we are to where we want to be Full Lyrics That is, the song encourages people to think critically and less selfishly about what it means to be a success — a motif reinforced by the visual story of the video.
As one respondent noted to a post about the video, "I love the fact how the Maccabeats teased out the real message, a far better message, for us to listen to be become inspired to improve ourselves.
Third, the Maccabeats use parodic humor to integrate traditional Jewish wisdom and secular American culture. Parody plays an important role not only in contemporary Jewish interactions with broader American popular culture, but also has deep roots in Yiddish and rabbinical tradition.
Throughout the twentieth century, American Jews have used parody to engage with American traditions from which they might have been excluded based on their religious beliefs. As Joshua Eli Plaut explains, American Jews have played a crucial role in remaking Christmas, both by "neutralizing" and defusing into a secular and cultural rather than religious institution, and by relentlessly satirizing and parodying Christmas Plaut Yet, parody also has roots in Jewish culture beyond the boundaries of the U.
As David Roskies notes about his childhood in Montreal, "To grow up Yiddish, was to grow up with parody. It marked the fault lines of Jewish modernity—the tortuous path of Jewish emancipation and counteremancipation" Roskies Jewish parody has an even longer history and is deeply wedded to the holiday of Purim, itself a story about the perils of Jewish immersion in foreign lands and cultures Roskies Yet despite its long roots in Jewish traditions, the form of parody invoked by the Maccabeats is very much part of digital-age Americana.
Song parodies form a major subgenre on YouTube a quick search yields 17,, results for "song parody" and range from thinly-disguised attempts to regulate popular taste, to engagements in resentment humor see Nelson , to fan mashups.
Such parodies embrace the power of digital technology to allow mass response.
For my young son, for example, almost every song on the radio is an imitation of "Minecraft Song": Minecraft fans have created so many YouTube mashups of Minecraft footage, popular melodies, and Minecraft inspired lyrics, that for some young fans, the imitation actually supplants the original.
We performed, met the President, then we gathered in the East Room and davened Mincha right there in the house of the President of the United States. For me it was unbelievable to think how far the Jewish people have come in the past 60 years. I was very proud to have been given that privilege.
Mordy Prus: This past summer we had the opportunity to perform at the Maccabi games in Hebrew University for thousands of teens from all over the US and of all different denominations of Judaism — it was extremely moving to hear almost everyone sing along to Candlelight as we were singing on stage — really seeing the effects that the video has had on the Jewish world at large.
