Mah Jongg and Its Jewish-American Roots

Tuesday, July 25, 2023
4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Melissa Martens Yaverbaum, Executive Director of the Council of American Jewish Museums and curator of the 2010 exhibit “Project Mah Jongg” at Museum of Jewish Heritage in NYC, joins us for a presentation about Mah Jongg – a game more widely known than understood! She’ll explain how Mah Jongg made a surprisingly lasting impression on American audiences – including Jewish women – as early as the 1920s, and has endured as a cultural touchstone ever since. Whether you’re a Mah Jongg fan, a history buff, or both, you don’t want to miss this one!
