Six13 and 22 a Cappella Groups Sing "Al Hanissim" as Purim Starts Tonight

No collection of Jewish holiday music videos would be complete without an entry from Six13, an a cappella group that has produced videos for Chanukah, Rosh Hashana, and Passover. In previous years we posted many of their Jewish music videos.

Miracles never cease! Al Hanissim is a text sung on Purim and Chanukah, two of the many holidays on which we thank God for the miracles performed for us. 

In this video, Six13 is joined by over 300 a cappella singers from 22 ensembles around the world singing an updated version of one of their signature songs. The ensembles are listed below the video.

Enjoy! Chag Purim Sameach!
