Mah Jongg Cards

Mon, 11/13/2017 - 10:53am -- Sisterhood

Time to order your Mah Jongg card for 2018!  Sisterhood will once again be placing the Mah Jongg card order for the synagogue. The congregation receives a donation for each card that we order, so please ask all your Maj buddies to order through us.

Last year, Sisterhood received nearly $400 from the National Mah Jongg League for our order. This money goes back to the Congregation through Sisterhood activities that benefit the Congregation.
