FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS

by

Described as “so Jewcy,” this annual holiday ball has certainly multiplied in scope and prestige since its inception 28 years ago. Created in 1987 as an alternative for young Jewish singles bombarded by the total cultural takedown that is Christmas Eve — a break from school and work, everywhere closed, A Christmas Story running 24/7 on TV — the Matzoball has now exploded into a high-profile formal event in 15 cities across the U.S. Tonight’s New York edition features live performances and DJs all night. Dress in your best and get to schmoozing.

Wed., Dec. 24, 9 p.m., 2014
