Things That Make Me Happy: The Maccabeats

Believe me, I have plenty to say rattling around in my head. It'll come soon. After all, I have tax law classes for the next three days...

But in the meantime, I wanted to share something that makes me happy: the new Maccabeats video is out! I LOVE the throw-back to the Candlelight video!

Ilan was so proud of these guys, especially the cinematic stylings of Uri (quit your day job already, jeez). He was proud of you as people, as Jews, as musicians, and as new Jewish celebrities!

I apologize if this post seems irreverent. For those of you who don't know me yet, the people who just met me this weekend in NYC probably realized something: even mourning can't stop me from laughing. I laugh a LOT. That's been one of the hardest things for me, but I think also one of the healthiest. And despite every guilty feeling to the contrary, I think Ilan would be angry with me if I stifled my laughter since it's probably what we shared the most.

May we merit only simchas and joyful laughter!


  1. I am soooo happy to hear/see that you are laughing!!! Laughing is very good medicine :) May we all merit to laugh right into the era of Moshiach!!

  2. I'm been saying tefilos for you.
    Each of us handle death and loss in a different way. Express yourself as you need. the only thing that is important is to make sure to feel whatever it is you feel.

  3. Thank you. Going to see Reva today and I haven't been able to listen to music yet. Thank you.
