From Georgia with love: A Rosh Hashanah meal from the Silk Road
Temuri Yakobashvili and Yana Fremer, who come from a small Jewish community in Tbilisi, decorate their holiday table with a mix of Sephardi and Ashkenazi Georgian delicacies.
Temuri Yakobashvili and Yana Fremer will celebrate this Rosh Hashanah at their home in Washington, D.C., far from their hometown of Tbilisi, Georgia. And like others celebrating away from home, they will serve the food they grew up with - dishes like khenagi, stuffed fish, Kada Giuliani, as a way to keep them connected to their tradition.
