Yeshiva University's a cappella group, the Maccabeats, have built up quite a following among lovers of Jewish a cappella singing.
Their voices have been prominent among the growing number of music videos that are released before most Jewish holidays.
They have just released a new music video called Home. It's a medley of popular songs combined to express the feeling that home can be in a New York apartment or in the neighborhoods of Jerusalem. It's filmed on a Manhattan rooftop and on the George Washington Bridge in New York and the new Chord Bridge (Bridge of Strings) at the entrance to Jerusalem.
