Y.U. Chanukah frenzy: Dreidel record and viral video


OK, OK, the idea of Yehsiva University coming down with a case of Chanukah fever isn’t quite stop-the-presses news. Still, we figured you might enjoy some of the details.

First, this video from The Maccabeats, which has gone viral (my kids only account for 100 of the views):

 And a bunch of those crazy Y.U. kids just broke the world record for group dreidel-spinning. (Don’t get me started on this trend of group records.)

Oh, and while we’re on the topic… there is something ridiculous about an Orthodox institution honoring the memory of the Maccabees by naming its sports teams after them.
