Ultrabar Hosts MatzoBall Holiday Party, December 24th

From our friends at MatzoBall...

The Nation’s #1 Holiday Party, the MatzoBall, Is Back and Better than Ever!

MatzoBall is the Jewish holiday party of the year

This year will mark the 33rd year that Jewish singles and their friends come together in one place for what is considered the nation’s #1 holiday party, the MatzoBall. The MatzoBall will be held in select cities around the country, making it the event of the year. This year, they have partnered with the organization Gift of Life Marrow Registry, providing attendees with the chance to save a life this Hanukkah. This is a fun annual bash that singles will not want to miss out on. Whether meeting up for a fun-filled night, or finding someone that turns out to be their soul mate, MatzoBall has a long reputation of bringing Jewish singles together. “This is one of the most important events each year in the Jewish community if you are single,” explains Andrew Rudnick, from Mazel Events, LLC and founder of the MatzoBall. “People know that they will not only have a great time, but there is a good chance it will be the place where a new relationship gets started. This event is literally the birthplace of many happy families, and we’re proud of that.”

“Anyone who has ever attended MatzoBall knows how incredible this party is, those who haven’t yet are truly missing out,” explains Andrew Rudnick, from Mazel Events, LLC and founder of the MatzoBall. “Make this the year that you attend MatzoBall. Once you do, you will never want to miss it again, it’s that much fun!”

According to the US Census Bureau, roughly 45% of the US adult population is single, which is more than any other time in history. Despite there being so many singles around the nation, many people find it difficult to meet those who have similar interests or background. Attending MatzoBall is a great way for Jewish singles to meet others. It provides a fun and stress free atmosphere, which could be the start of a long lasting relationship.

Rudnick started the MatzoBall tradition in 1987, when he convinced a bar owner to keep the place open so that he and some friends could have a gathering on Christmas Eve. That night, he met his future wife, loved seeing how much fun everyone had, and decided to make it a yearly tradition. Since that time, there have been over 400,000 people who have attended the yearly bash.

Since its founding, MatzoBall has grown significantly. While the majority of those who attend it are Jewish, increasingly there has been others who are not who attend each year. Singles from all backgrounds and ethnicities are taking part in the annual tradition.  This year, attendees will have a chance to save a life when they attend the event.

By partnering with Gift of Life Marrow Registry, MatzoBall is giving people the option to help those who have blood cancer. The organization will have a table set up at the events and those who would like to be potential lifesavers can easily join the marrow registry with a simple cheek swab. At some point, they may be contacted regarding being a match for someone who needs a blood stem cell or marrow transplant.

“Gift of Life Marrow Registry is incredibly excited to be partnering with the Matzoball to save lives this Hanukkah,” said Gift of Life Jewish Community Engagement Coordinator Valerie Janovic. “On this holiday of miracles and gift-giving, you can be someone's miracle and give the gift of life. This Hanukkah, instead of ‘Chag Sameach,’ wish your friends and family a ‘Swab Sameach’ to raise awareness that finding a match and a cure begins with one remarkable person and one life-changing swab.”

MatzoBall, which is for those ages 21 and up, will be held from 9 PM to 2 AM in the following select cities on December 24, 2019:
