MazelTogether Summer - MazelTogether

Summer 2019

Here comes the sun…it’s time to have some fun!


Summer before kids: Sipping sangria by the pool, flipping through the piles of magazines you didn’t get to all year, spending quality time with friends on a lovely hike in the Rockies.

Summer with kids: Sipping dripping popsicles down your kid’s left hand, flipping out over the lack of structured nap time, spending time with a boatload of kids throwing water balloons at the neighbor’s dog, and realizing that hiking with them means a quarter mile walk with a bathroom stop and lots of snacks to the kid infested five inch pond.


Thank you to our Summer H.O.S.T.s!

How To Be A Mazel H.O.S.T

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Pick something you and your family want to do (a local festival, Ekar Day in the Dirt, Shabbat in the Park, etc.) and simply invite others to come along! Invite families you know and some families you don’t know yet (we’ll help you with that).
  2. Contact Bethany and complete an online MazelTogether H.O.S.T. Questionnaire
  3. Go have FUN! Complete the MazelTogether H.O.S.T. Post Questionnaire




As a summer treat, you’ll receive $50 to use towards anything you wish for your invited guests! (Think ice cream, popsicles, cold drinks, frozen yogurt, toddler snacks, watermelon or water balloons!)
