The Young Maccabees
THIS hilarious rock, pop and country version of the Hanukkah tale focuses on the ﬁght for personal and religious freedom and against oppression. Three young friends in Ancient Jerusalem – Joshua (Josh), Rachel (Rocky), and Zethus (Z) – want to join the Maccabee’s ﬁght against the “Madman” Greek King Antiochus, who has outlawed all Jewish practices. Bravely deﬁant, they become the Young Maccabees, and play a crucial role in driving out the Greeks and retaking the Jews’ sacred temple.
