Connecting Interfaith Families to Jewish Life in Greater Cleveland by providing programs and opportunities for interfaith families to experience Judaism in a variety of venues, meet other interfaith families, and to connect to other Jewish organizations that may serve their needs.
A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
The American version of Mah Jongg (or Maajh), a rummy-like game played with tiles rather than cards that originated in China, rose to popularity in the Jewish community in the early 20th century. This Mahj ClubTM Beginner Class Series with Sara Linden will cover tile recognition, strategy, and rules. Each student receives an official National Mah Jongg League playing card and will learn how to get their own “Mahj on” by the completion of the series. Seating is limited for the three-part series and advance registration is required.
A Mah Jongg enthusiast for over 15 years, Linden is at the forefront of the Gen X Mahj Renaissance. Her early skills were honed alongside her mother, over whom she now regularly triumphs. While Linden’s professional career moved her around the United States from Los Angeles to Charleston to San Francisco, she began creating Mahj clubs to connect with peers in new cities.
