Israeli fans were treated to a live appearance of the Maccabeats, the YouTube sensation whose video received 4.3 million hits.
The Jewish a cappella group performed at the Jerusalem Theater during the 12th congress of World Bnei Akiva last week.
The musical group made up of Yeshiva University students and alumni has been referred to as the Jewish version of Justin Bieber, but the Maccabeats have still not been offered a mainstream record deal.
