How Does The Young, Single Jewish Community Celebrate Christmas? The Mazel Tov Ball, of Course! South Florida's Biggest Party of the Year

Share Article

The Annual Mazel Tov Ball at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Gyphon Nightclub on Christmas Eve.

Let's face it, everything is closed on Christmas Eve, so what's a person to do? No, actually, what's a young, single Jewish person to do? That was the exact question Harry Baum had. Baum is the president of South Florida Single Living, a Jewish singles organization. His solution; produce the Mazel Tov Ball -- a singles event for the Jewish community, where young Jewish singles can celebrate in their own way by getting together on this highly festive day of the year. That was 21 years ago. "Since virtually everything is closed, and only a few restaurants are open, there's very little to do! I thought it would be nice to have an event to help take those 'holiday blues' away," Baum said.

Baum was right. The first Mazel Tov Ball occurred in 1986 and a couple of hundred people attended. "The event caught on like hot cakes, no actually more like potato latkes," Baum said. Each year it has grown almost exponentially with Baum expecting 2,000 people in attendance, a big enough crowd for him to rent out entirely one of South Florida's hottest night clubs at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino - Gryphons Nightclub.

The Gryphon Nightclub is located in the heart of the entertainment complex at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The club ranks among the finest upscale and exclusive lounges and nightclubs in the country. It is known for its extraordinary and sexy décor and renowned DJs. "The Gryphon offers an unparalleled experience in classic South Beach style, people who have never been there before will love it," Baum said.

"I decided to have it at Gryphons not just because it is an incredibly fun and beautiful night club, but it's also centrally located in all of South Florida with easy access to virtually all points from Kendall to West Palm Beach making it perfect for the entire South Florida single Jewish community. Also, there is so much to do at the Hard Rock, and people can even sleep there if they'd like too," Baum said.

Doors will open at 8 p.m. on Monday, December 24. The event will be from 8 p.m. - 4 a.m.
