Mah Jongg Tournament! Marcy Mostofsky, Lori Tabakin and Sandra Collins.

The largest annual fundraising event in support of Beth Sholom Village saw yet another round of changes in 2023:

•  Another postponement from fall 2022 to spring 2023, due to a resurgence of the pandemic – for those charged with the care and safety of senior adults, it felt as though it may never end; and

• Another venue change – this year moved to the Sandler Family Campus. The Mah Jongg Committee felt strongly that if it could not yet host this annual event at Beth Sholom Village, at least it could take place within the walls of the Jewish community campus.

Finally – the long awaited and successful reemergence of the Mah Jongg tournament took place on Sunday, April 23.

Some things that haven’t changed, despite the tumult of the last several years:

• The generosity of Lead Luncheon Sponsor Daniel Gordon, and the joy that his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren bring to the event every year;

• One hundred percent of the proceeds of the day benefitting residents at Beth Sholom Village and helping to bridge the gap between the actual cost of care and insurance and medical reimbursement; and

• The incredible support of the entire community – through sponsorships, raffle item donations, and Mah Jongg mavens who attend and play all day. BSV cannot thank them enough for spending the time to help the residents.

Many volunteers made certain the tournament took place: Those on the Mah Jongg Committee who prepped for this event throughout the year; Tournament Moderators Annette Mand and Marlene Rossen; Auxiliary Gift Shop volunteers who created a one-of-a-kind boutique shopping experience in the Cardo of the Sandler Family Campus; and the staff of Beth Sholom Village who executed the event flawlessly.

As trends in senior healthcare change daily and costs continue to rise, the need for community support will also continue to increase  – BSV thanks the participants and donors for their contributions to The Janet Gordon Annual Mah Jongg Day & Luncheon today and in the future.
