“It’s been really exciting,” said Maccabeat Josh Jay, a Yeshiva College graduate currently enrolled at Einstein Medical School. “Before it came out, we joked about the video going viral, but I don’t think any of us expected it to be quite this popular. It’s great to be able to reach so many people and spread the message of Channukah.”
