Dear Mazel community,

We are sure you are all very excited to see Mazel Day School's doors open, as our children returned to school in early September after the buildings being closed since mid-March. This was no easy task; tremendous hard work and preparation went into being able to re-open with all the guidelines and precautions to protect the health of our staff, children, and families. 

This obviously comes with great financial costs. We turn to all of you to ask for your support in helping cover the close to $500,000 in expenses the school has had to put in now.  This is in addition to the school's efforts to assist families financially affected by this pandemic and in need of increased tuition assistance. 

Now is the time to get involved and contribute your support to re-opening our community school. We are a community school, one built by the community and one that will continue to succeed through the community!

Be part of the reopening efforts!

Help a family in need!

THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW! From additional classrooms to added sinks and water fillers; from technology and professional development to new furniture, PPE, cleaning supplies, and additional staff (including a nurse), it is a heavy financial lift to open school during a pandemic. Thank you to all those that have already pledged or contributed. It is not too late to get involved, we need everyone’s help! Please consider helping us cover all these new costs, as we simultaneously increase tuition assistance for our Mazel families.  

Big or small, every contribution makes a difference.  Share this link with family members and friends; invite them to be a part of this monumental and important cause.

We look forward to a successful and healthy new school year. As we are in the days around Yom Kippur, we take this opportunity to wish you all a Gmar Chatima Tovah. May we all be written and sealed in the book of life, for a sweet year filled with health, nachas and success.

Warmly yours,

Rabbi Avremel and Chani Okonov, Executive Director and Head of School
