This campaign is over.
You can still contribute to this campaign.

Update: 6:42pm - New Goal

WOW!!  We are in awe of the tremendous outpouring of support. YOU have given us the confidence to shoot for an even more ambitious goal.

Thanks to additional support from our matchers, we now have only 2.5 hours left to reach our new goal of $400,000!  That means we're raising another $40K together.

When we initially set our goal of $360,000 for this year’s campaign, we weren't sure if we could do it -- it was ambitious though very much needed as this goal would help us cover 50% of our annual deficit. And YOU pulled through!  You rallied your friends, your family, your neighbors, and fellow community members -- you did it and we met the goal! But we're not done. We're going to go for more!  For our children, let’s aim for BRIGHTER! BIGGER! 

#BonusRound starts now!

The Campaign is ON!

About Mazel

Mazel Day School is a remarkable story! It started out as a vision undertaken by very inspired and driven people who believed that the key to building Jewish identity in the homes of Russian Jews living in America today is through the education of their children. MDS’s vision was to build a Jewish day school that caters to the unique character of the Brooklyn Russian Jewish community: an educational institution that provides a rich and engaging curriculum in both general and Judaic studies and serves as a source of inspiration and guidance for parents and students as they explore their Jewish identity.

When Mazel Day School opened its doors to its pioneer classes, only a few dozen families enrolled their students.

Fast forward to today: MDS is a thriving co-educational day school for students in Pre-Nursery through Grade 8. MDS has grown to a school with 23 classes, nearly 360 students, and a teaching staff of 45. Every year Mazel’s student body continues to grow exponentially, servicing not only children from Russian-speaking families, but from American and Israeli families as well.

The establishment of MDS represents a key milestone on the Russian Jew’s journey toward revival of their Jewish identity. It is the key that is helping unlock the full potential of this community. MDS serves as a model for Jewish education and is a true catalyst that is driving change in Brooklyn’s Russian Jewish Community.
