Nationally Known Mah Jongg Teacher, Author and Historian, Ann Israel presents:
Mah Jongg: The Art of the Game

Followed by Lunch and an afternoon of Mah Jongg playtime
Thursday, December 8 at 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.


Ann Israel’s love affair with Mah Jongg began with the exhibition “Project Mah Jongg” at the Museum of Jewish Heritage. She began to play the game regularly and became enamored with its history and beauty. She has since collected a considerable number of vintage sets as well as continuing to travel across the country to lecture about Mah Jongg. Ann’s presentation will include photos and explanations of many of the vintage sets from her book as well as covering a brief history of this exotic game, the myriad materials used to make the incredible tiles, and a look at the magnificent boxes that hold the mysterious contents of Mah Jongg.

Ann blogs daily about all things Mah Jongg at
