Five years ago, the Maccabeats catapulted to stardom on the heels of their viral Hanukkah music video, “Candlelight,” which now has more than 10 million views on YouTube.

It’s an original bluegrass-inflected composition for “Hanerot Hallalu” (“These Candles”), the traditional prayer said over the lit Hanukkah menorah.
