What an incredible way to end 2023! Mazelpalooza, the highlight of the young adult calendar, celebrated its 25th anniversary with a fantastic throwback to the 90s. The event, presented by NowGen, a program of the Center for Jewish Philanthropy of Greater Phoenix, marked this momentous occasion in style.

Drawing in over 500 attendees, including a whopping 275 first-timers, this year’s Mazelpalooza became the largest in many years. The 90s theme was an absolute hit, transporting everyone back to the era of iconic music, colorful graffiti, and those unforgettable nostalgic snacks.

This special gathering couldn’t have come at a better time. After a series of challenging months for the global Jewish community, Mazelpalooza provided a space for us to come together as a Jewish community, reconnecting with old and building new connections.

As we danced and laughed, our thoughts remained with our brothers and sisters in Israel. The event was not just a celebration; it was a reminder of our unity and unwavering support for those facing hardships abroad.

A heartfelt round of applause goes to our incredible event committee. Their dedication and imaginative ideas transformed Mazelpalooza into an evening that will be remembered for years to come.

We also express immense gratitude to our generous sponsors who made this event possible:

    • ROI Properties
    • Lane & Nach P.C.

Mazelpalooza’s 25th anniversary wasn’t just about the event itself; it was a celebration of a quarter-century of bringing our community together. Here’s to 25 more years of joyous gatherings, meaningful connections, and spreading Jewish pride within our community.
