Post Marathon Wrap Up


Yesterday was one of the most fun and exhilarating days I have spent at the Museum of Jewish Heritage — and that is saying a lot. I want to thank the 62 women (and a couple of brave men) who joined us for the Mah Jongg Marathon. We all had a grand time playing the game and raising money for a great cause. I think most of us even made it home in time to hear the national anthem before the Super Bowl and catch some good commercials with talking animals.

While I may have a headache from a little too much laughter, too much chocolate, and trying to speak over the clicking of tiles, and my head may still be spinning from trying to keep different “table rules” straight, meeting so many enthusiastic players and lovely people was just a joy. By the end of the day, we were all old friends. Players were exchanging e-mail addresses and promising to get together for regular games and the staff wholeheartedly agreed to do it again next year.

If you were not among the crew yesterday, you can catch a video of the event on the Daily News website:. Click on “local” and then “Mah Jongg Marathon.”

Seen here: Our youngest player, 10 year old Alyssa McPherson, holds her own with the pros.
