Los Angeles Jewish Community Unites On Christmas Eve

19th annual SCHMOOZ-A-PALOOZA expected to attract more than 1,000 local Jews 

Beverly Hills, Calif. (Nov. 28, 2012) – It’s 8pm on December 24th. Do you know where your Jewish friends are? If they’re in the know, then they’re likely at the SLS Hotel Beverly Hills for SCHMOOZ-A-PALOOZA®, also known as “The Chosen Party™.”

Held for the first time in 1994, SCHMOOZ-A-PALOOZA instantly became the hippest, must-attend Jewish party in Los Angeles. Nearly two decades later, this annual can’t-miss event has gone from a fun party to an annual tradition for all Jews – not just singles! For those who don’t celebrate Christmas or would rather not spend the evening at home eating Chinese food, this holiday fete is the place to be whether you’re single, in a relationship or happily married.

Tickets are on sale now for SCHMOOZ-A-PALOOZA, whose presenting sponsor is JDate.com, the leading online community for Jewish singles. Yet, anybody looking to have fun on Christmas Eve is welcome to attend the festivities, single or not. Held for the first time at the world-famous SLS Hotel Beverly Hills, this year’s SCHMOOZ-A-PALOOZA is guaranteed to surprise guests with sweet delights at every turn. From the opulent setting to the not-so-subtle nods to Jewish nostalgia, this “Festivus for the Rest of Us” promises to deliver a night hotter than your first kiss at sleep away camp.

“SCHMOOZ-A-PALOOZA is a highly anticipated annual tradition, and we are thrilled to continue the celebration this year,” said Greg Liberman, CEO of SCHMOOZ-A-PALOOZA’s owner and operator, Spark Networks. “This year, we have taken things up a notch with a new, exclusive, luxurious venue and a fun nostalgic theme, which will make this year’s SCHMOOZ-A-PALOOZA a can’t-miss event for the Los Angeles Jewish community.”

Liberman will be hosting an exclusive dinner for JDate Success Story couples at the SLS prior to the party. JDate is responsible for more Jewish marriages than all other online dating sites combined, and the dinner is an opportunity to connect with a few of the countless couples who have found love on JDate.

In line with this year’s theme (Growing Up Jewish), the SLS ballroom will bring guests back to their youth, mirroring the classic Bar or Bat Mitzvah reception with a DJ, dance floor and photo booth. Party-goers will also enjoy themed rooms throughout the SLS such as Camp Corner and Sundae School, each with specialty cocktails such as the Shticky S’more, designed to stir up great memories of the past and contribute to new ones. The ballroom will also feature an exclusive VIP section with its own bar, private seating and bottle service.

Additional SCHMOOZ-A-PALOOZA sponsors include MOE Deli Truck, which will be on premises to serve “Jewnese” food  and Uber, the on-demand private driver service ordered through the Uber exclusive app.  Uber is offering $20-$30 off rides to and from SCHMOOZ-A-PALOOZA for all attendees. The purchase of a ticket to SCHMOOZ-A-PALOOZA will also enable attendees to receive a 25 percent discount on rooms at the SLS Hotel on Dec. 24.
