The Parent Page was a special project of Mazel Parent Association from 2010-2013. We look forward to bringing it back to the MDS Community in the near future!

Dear Existing and Prospective Parents,

Every month the Mazel Parents Page Editorial Board publishes a new issue of our own Mazel newsletter. Our mission is to create a read that is close to the hearts of Mazel parents and staff. By listing weekend activities to do with your children, by interviewing parents and teachers, by sharing our recipe ideas and through our monthly cartoon humor and quirky questions, we hope to get you closer to the community your children are so intimately involved with. In addition, our goal is to share the thoughts and advice of acclaimed doctors, psychologists and experts in the parenting field, including our own Chani Okonov, so that we can all benefit from the tips on how to have a healthy and happy family. After all, there is no place like home and Mazel is a home away from home for our children.

Hope you continue to enjoy the Parents Page newsletter and please do not hesitate to send us your comments or thoughts at

Anna Ashurov, Editor
