Mah Jongg - The Art of the Game 

Get ready for the 2016 Mah Jongg World Championship at this Dessert Reception and book signing with Mahj Maven, teacher & author, Ann Israel.

Mah Jongg

Ann M. Israel was born in Detroit, Michigan, lived in California for many years, and then moved to New York City in 1989. All of her life she has been interested in learning about art and studying art history, which culminated in earning an undergraduate B.A. in Art History. A number of years ago, after being inspired by the museum exhibit, "Project Mah Jongg," Ann took Mah Jongg lessons with a group of friends. As she began playing the game on a regular basis she also started her study of the spectacular vintage Mah Jongg sets that existed; soon she purchased her first set. That is when her love affair began with the history of Mah Jongg and the beauty of the tiles and sets. Since purchasing that first set she has continued to collect vintage sets, each one adding to her appreciation of the art of the game.
