Perri Klein has been named MazelTot Coordinator at Rose Community Foundation. Klein will oversee MazelTot’s network of partner organizations and serve as a resource to help families connect to Jewish life and one another.
Launched in September 2009, MazelTot is an initiative of Rose Community Foundation and was developed to connect families with young children to local Jewish life and to one another. At mazeltot.org, families can explore the offerings of 35 Jewish institutions throughout the Greater Denver and Boulder region.
For the past three years, Klein served as MazelTot’s part-time family networker, connecting young families and expectant parents to local Jewish life. Prior to joining MazelTot full-time, Klein was donor services coordinator at the Robert E.

Klein holds a bachelor’s degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology and a master’s degree in Middle Eastern History from Tel Aviv University. She herself is a member of the demographic MazelTot seeks to serve as she is a recent transplant to Denver and the mother of a one-year-old daughter.
