Hanukkah Song Becomes Internet Sensation

Some students at Yeshiva University have come up with a music video for Hanukkah that is now going viral. In only a couple of days the video has racked up over 2 million views.

The feast of Hanukkah, of course, celebrates the Jewish victory over the Greeks and is recounted in the books of Maccabees. I love this story. In fact, I just taught on the books of Maccabees today! It should go without saying that these amazing books are only found in Catholic Bibles.

So this might be a little confusing for some of you ought there. ; )

I think the world would be a better place if there were more Jewish "seminarians" like these guys! More power to them!

If only we could get our Catholic youth to do something like that for World Youth Day. It would be cool (just don't do it for liturgy).
