Mah Jong/Canasta

Monday, May 13, 2019 8 Iyar 5779

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

How did a 19th century Chinese parlor game come to be a favorite pastime for Jewish women? From the tenements of New York City to the bungalows of the Catskills and the vast American suburbs, Jewish women have kept Mah Jongg alive enjoying the betting and matching of tiles into Rummy-like patterns. Speaking of Rummy, did you know that Canasta is the only member of the family of Rummy games to achieve the status of a classic?

Come and enjoy both of these classics on Monday nights at Emanu-El. Contact Jane Dubro for game schedule.
