“The Mystique of Mah Jongg” Wednesday, April 28, 2021 7pm
The Mystique of Mah Jongg, the exotic game of tiles with bams, cracks, dots, dragons, winds, flowers, and the most coveted tile of all: the elusive joker, will be presented on Zoom by the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW, GNO) on April 28, 7:00 pm.
Renee Zack, a member of NCJW, Greater New Orleans Section, for the past 44 years and a Mah Jongg teacher at the Uptown JCC, is the featured speaker.
According to NCJW Membership Vice President, Karen Sher, “This entertaining and educational program is designed to explain what it is about this more than two-centuries-old game first played in China that continues to fascinate and charm us.
“The plan is to engage Zoom participants in group discussion about their Mah Jongg experiences and to inform all on the joys and health benefits of Mah Jongg,” Sher said. “Renee exudes warmth and friendliness.”
One of Zack’s students, NCJW member Patty Barnett, exclaimed enthusiastically, “Renee was a wonderful Mah Jongg teacher and she is the reason why I love Mah Jongg so much!”
Besides teaching Mah Jongg, Zack worked as a medical office manager for 35 years, and now has her own business called “Don’t Pay ‘til I Say.”
