Jewish grandmothers have traditionally been fierce Mah Jongg players, but the ancient Chinese tile game is attracting players of all ages and faiths these days. The Jewish Community Alliance of Southern Maine is hosting a Mah Jongg marathon today at SMCC’s Culinary Arts Dining Room, in South Portland, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. There’ll also be lots of Mah Jongg memorabilia and tchotchkes on display. Entrance fee: $20. 772-1959. mainejewish.org.
