About our name: MaZAL
The word mazal, often pronounced with a Yiddish inflection, “mazel” as in “mazel tov,” comes from the Hebrew word which means “luck”. In truth, the word means “a group of stars’ or a “constellation.” Medieval Jews paid close attention to the “mazalot,” the constellations, and in fact, we find representation of the constellations throughout the ancient Jewish world. Jews have always found meaning in astrology, as it represented the vast possibilities of the world created by God. As countless are the stars in the night sky, so too, are the paths of Jewish study. As we partake in adult Jewish learning, we offer a few of those paths, leaving many more for tomorrow. It is our MaZAL to learn. Come learn and enjoy!
