A new kind of Mah Jongg fundraiser

Janet Gordon Annual Mah Jongg
Day of play and Luncheon, Sunday, April 3

Beth Sholom Village plans to bring back the Janet Gordon Annual Mah Jongg event in April, with 100% of its proceeds directly benefiting BSV’s residents. As so many things have changed in the last two years, so must the way Mah Jongg is played and funds for BSV are raised.

The Janet Gordon Annual Mah Jongg event will be held at the Hyatt Place Virginia Beach Town Center, and all attendees at the event must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Additionally, this year’s event will only feature a Day of Play and Luncheon, rather than the traditional Mah Jongg Tournament. A Mah Jongg tournament requires players to move from table to table, increasing the number of people touching the same tiles and increasing the number of contacts; instead, Mah Jongg group cohorts will be maintined, playing for fun and celebrating being together again. Rest assured—special prizes will be awarded throughout the event, and the famous raffles will take place.

Rachel Abraham, event co-chair, says, “I can’t wait to be back in-person for our annual Mah Jongg fundraiser, and even though it won’t be held at Beth Sholom Village, the residents who benefit from this event are in our thoughts and hearts now more than ever before. I feel lucky that we can still enjoy this event and give back to those BSV residents and caregivers who have felt the daily burden of COVID-19 over the last two years.”
