Join us for the Grand Opening of our latest exhibit Project Mah Jongg, developed by Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in New York. Curator Melissa Martens Yaverbaum will trace the evolution of the mysterious Chinese game that became an American sensation in the 1920s and today remains a beloved institution in Jewish communal, personal, and cultural life.  Explore the exhibition and even play a game of mah jongg. Staff will be on hand to explain the rules or any novices (table space is limited).

 

Contact Trillion Attwood, tattwood@jewishmuseummd.org / 410-732-6400 for more information and to reserve your Mah Jongg game!

 

Project Mah Jongg is made possible through the generosity of the National Mah Jongg League. Additional support is provided by Sylvia Hassenfeld and 2wice Arts Foundation
