Is Mah Jongg a Jewish Game?

Mah Jongg is a 19th-century Chinese game. It came to this country about 1920. During the twenty’s and thirty’s, it became popular among Jewish women. The National Mah Jongg League was formed in 1937 by a group of Jewish women to standardize the rules used in this country. However, many people play the game, and no religious affiliation is required.
