The wonderful Faye Scher shared a link from My Jewish Learning – this link took us to “The History of Mah Jongg Snacks” written by “The Nosher” (explained as a “blogging tour of all things Jewish food, recipes, and news, written by Shannon Sarna and other Jewish food lovers.”).

Pass the licorice!I had to laugh at the last paragraph in the article when Ivy Barsky observes, “food is a kind of fifth player.” So true!!!!
Don’t forget that today – January 1st, 2017, is the day to place your order with the National Mah Jongg League for your new 2017 card (to be delivered in late March/early April). The sooner you place your order, the sooner you will receive your card.
