How It All Began:

MatzoBall founder, Andy Rudnick (born and raised in Boston), then a Boston University college student, organized a Christmas Eve bash for himself and his Jewish friends in 1986 at a local Boston bar. “We were a bunch of Jewish kids who were bored on Christmas Eve. I convinced a local bar to stay open, invited a bunch of people, and the rest is history,” says Rudnick. He actually met his wife that night, collected a tidy sum at the door, and realized he was on to something.

Thirty-one years later, MatzoBall parties are the annual Christmas Eve party of the year! The majority of attendees are Jewish, though more and more, the floodgates have opened with singles of all backgrounds showing up. “It’s become the biggest holiday party of the year. Period,” states Rudnick.

Beyond the glitz & glam, the flirting, cocktails and suggestive dancing, the MatzoBall has earned a multigenerational reputation for being the place to be to find that special someone. Each year, everyone turns out with the hope of bumping into THE ONE at one of these parties. It’s an amazing departure from dating apps.
