Back in January I wrote about a teacher in the Philadelphia area by the name of Leah Feigenbaum. In August I received an email from Leah telling me about a new and exciting development:
Hi Ann – I hope you are well. Thought I would forward a new development in the world of Mah Jongg. I teach Maj in the Philadelphia area, you were kind enough to feature me on your blog during the winter. I am just going to copy a letter I have sent to my students below. Check it out, maybe you would be willing to put this on your blog too. Thanks so much, Leah
I hope that you have all enjoyed my classes over the years. One problem I have always had is to be able to offer enough classes in enough locations to help all the people who would love to learn this growing game of Mah Jongg. I have exciting news to tell you. I have partnered with some other avid Mah Jongg ladies and we have developed a website for you and your friends.
www.MahJonggMentor.com has both free and membership offerings to help you continue to power up your game. For the beginner who cannot attend my class, there are video lessons. This is also perfect for those needing a refresher. These videos take it from the very beginning. For those of you who already know how to play, there are strategy sessions and playing exercises to help you with hints and tips to improve your play and enjoy the game even more. And as we continue to expand the site, you will have access to all things Mah Jongg. Please feel free to offer suggestions of what you would like to see and learn.
It may be cold and snowy in the City of Brotherly Love right now but there is no shortage of love for Mah Jongg there.
Recently I heard from Leah Feigenbaum and she had a lot to tell us:
“My name is Leah Feigenbaum and I have been playing the fascinating, fun, and fabulous game of Mah Jongg for well over forty years. Like many of you, I fell in love with this game watching my mother at our kitchen table. Eager to spread my passion, I have been teaching the game throughout the Greater Philadelphia Area for beginners and experienced players alike for the past seven years. While I love teaching new students the fundamentals of this great game, I get a real thrill from instructing my more seasoned students on the nuances and intricacies each year as new cards are released. Privileged to have taught more than three hundred students, I feel so lucky to have touched some great people, enlightening them to this lifelong game.
Whether you are attracted to the intellectual stimulation or the social aspect, Mah Jongg could be for you!
I can be contacted at 610-825-8630 or email@example.com”
If you are lucky enough to be living in the greater Philadelphia area, give Leah a call or send her an email – you are about to join a great group of people who have been taught the game by Leah.
