The original Matzoball—founded by Andrew Rudnick in 1987 as a Christmas Eve party for single Jewish Americans—has reinvented itself for the pandemic: Although the company usually throws as many 20 parties in cities nationwide and worldwide, this year, the fun will go virtual.
In a press release, Rudnick explains, “This year we needed to think outside the box. Every year we give tens of thousands of single Jews the opportunity to meet in person at the hottest nightclubs all over the country. This year, we are inviting partygoers to attend online—and it will be a much bigger and better event than anyone can imagine. We are beyond thrilled to announce the launch of Matzoball Online!”
The parties start on Christmas Eve at 9 p.m. and will be broken down by region and age range. Each event will guarantee a minimum of 20 to 30, five-minute dates, and the participants will then have the opportunity to anonymously choose whom they felt they had a connection with. If the connection is mutual, they will be notified via email of their mutual connections 15 minutes after the event and will be given the opportunity to connect again.
The Matzoball Online is set to go online in the following regions/countries, but also anticipates adding more: Atlanta, Boca, Delray Beach, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angelese, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco, Washington, DC, Montreal, Toronto, London, Sydney, and Tel Aviv.
Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.matzoball.org and cost $35, which includes entry into the 1st Matzoball Online event, and also will offer ticket purchasers exclusive discounts to the monthly speed dating events that will be hosted by Matzoball in 2021.
According to Guinness World Records, the largest known speed dating event, which drew 964 people, occurred on February 14, 2019, Valentine’s Day, in Dublin, Ireland. Matzoball anticipates five times as many people will participate in their event.
The Matzoball claims to have been responsible for thousands of marriages over the past 34 years—and having been named the #1 Holiday Party by USA Today..
