Sisterhood Presents The History of Mah Jongg & Online Play

March 14, 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Crack, Bam, Dot! Mah Jongg and its Jewish-American Roots

Sisterhood is pleased to welcome Melissa Martens Yaverbaum, Executive Director of the Council of American Jewish Museums and curator of Project Mah Jongg, who will share the surprising backstory of the tile game played by generations of Jewish women since the 1920s. Even if you don’t play, come learn all about Mah Jongg and its Jewish-American roots. After Melissa’s talk, all Mahj players are invited to play together at Real Mah Jongg. For questions about playing post-presentation, contact Rachel Kamin.
