Watch: This A Cappella Group Takes Us On A Journey Through 300 Years Of Jewish Music

The Y-Studs A Capella, the all-male, Yeshiva University a cappella group that made — dare I say it? — history with their Passover-themed rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and, subsequently, their Hanukkah twist on the Chainsmoker’s “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Closer,” is back.

And this time, they’re bringing us something that doesn’t need a clever Jewish twist — because it’s the last 300 years of Jewish music.

In honor of the High Holiday season, Y-Studs A Capella presents “Evolution of Jewish Music,” a comprehensive “mega-medley” of the last 300 years in Jewish music history. Please enjoy — and don’t worry, they don’t forget to pay tribute to Adam Sandler.
