Jen Gordon, the owner of the online store and website, Mad About Mah Jongg, has put up a posting about me on her Facebook page – wow!!!
She calls it her…
…and here is what she wrote:
Ann Israel, the co-author of the book, Mah Jongg: The Art of the Game, teaches a number of different Mah Jongg classes: Beginners Mah Jongg, Advanced Strategy Mah Jongg, and Supervised Play Mah Jongg. Ann also gives accelerated learning classes for groups of 4 or more where the game is taught in two consecutive half-day sessions. These classes are also offered in the Hamptons and other “second home” locations. In addition to teaching Mah Jongg, Ann travels throughout the country, giving her Power Point presentation on the history of the game. Ann lives on the Upper East Side of Manhattan; she writes a daily blog, Mah Jongg and Me (www.mahjonggandme.com) and invites everyone to send photos and anecdotes about their Mah Jongg experiences for posting on the blog (send to email@example.com) and to visit her in NYC where she will be sure to put together a group to play Mah Jongg with you!
I am honored to be included in one of her “Teacher Feature” postings. Be sure to visit Jen’s website for news on upcoming tournaments and socials and to buy some of the great Mah Jongg related products that she offers. Jen says, “After retiring from a successful career of 24 years, I founded Mad About Mah Jongg, Inc. as a way to combine my love of Mah Jongg with my skills as an artist and designer. Many of our products were conceived and designed in-house. Our very popular Mahj-tini and Mahj-arita glasses are two fun examples. More importantly, we are proud to provide the highest quality merchandise available. And, our products are made by local artisans and manufacturers in the USA, whenever possible. It’s an important tradition we embrace wholeheartedly.”

Ann, it is so obvious to many of us how giving a person you are and how you incorporate this love into your friendships and teachings. You are so worthy of this recognition. CONGRATS!
Jan – the exact same thing should be said about you. You touch my heart. CANNOT WAIT for your visit to NYC!
I’m counting the days!!! So looking forward to it!
