Congratulations to Rose Community Foundation for a terrific launch of MazelTot – a new website that makes it easy for expectant parents and families with children under age five to explore Jewish life in the Denver/Boulder area.
The site lists local Jewish organizations, events and links to Jewish parenting resources. Parents can find discounts and free offers worth up to $1,000. “The discounts aim to help families ‘live Jewishly’ during rough economic times,” Lisa Farber Miller, Rose Community Foundation Senior Program Officer, said. Parents can check out the calendar for fun things to do, search for preschools, camps, classes, prenatal programs, retreats, holiday events and more. There is the ability, through an on-line MeetUp group, to connect with other young Jewish families. There are also ideas for celebrating your children’s milestones Jewishly.
Boulder County regional organizations that will participate include the Adventure Rabbi, Congregation Beth Ami, the Boulder JCC, the Boulder Jewish Day School, Chabad of Longmont, Chabad of NW Metro Denver, Congregation Nevei Kodesh, Judaism in the Foothills, and Stepping Stones.
There was a great article in the Daily Camera on Sept. 25th. Excerpt:
MazelTot organizers called up Jewish organizations around the Denver-metro and Boulder area that offer pre-kindergarten programs and events. Twenty nine organizations agreed to join MazelTot and offer discounts on programs such as yoga classes, daycare services, retreats and musical events. The grant helps pay organizations so they can provide discounts and deals. Families can see a list of events and services side by side, then use discounts to try new things. Each family can use up to $1,000 in deals.
Please check out all the ways to connect!
Another interesting initiative from Rose Community Foundation. I hope more Boulder organizations participate.
