Judah and the Maccabees is a groovy, mellow song by the American rock duo Damon and Naomi. Here’s what Damon Krukowski says about the song in the liner notes:

Track Three: Judah & the Maccabees
Judah Maccabee led an uprising in ancient Israel, recapturing the Temple for the Jews. Damon says, “The song was physically inspired by renovations to the new Exact Change office, in the course of which we did a lot of poking into formerly closed up spaces. That connected to something haunting I saw at the Tenement Museum on the Lower East Side — walled up spaces — and a metaphoric connection to my family's history. We're hoping
for heavy rotation on Tel Aviv soft rock radio.”
