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.”

Knives Out Movie Review

Daniel Craig stars in Knives Out

Tragedy of Errors

Rotten Tomatoes Plot: Acclaimed writer and director Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper, Star Wars: The Last Jedi) pays tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie in Knives Out, a fun, modern-day murder mystery where everyone is a suspect. When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan's dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan's untimely death. With an all-star ensemble cast including Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, Lakeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford and Jaeden Martell, Knives Out is a witty and stylish whodunit guaranteed to keep audiences guessing until the very end.
