Dan Maslia, 90, is recognized as a community treasure at Congregation Or VeShalom in northeast Atlanta. He led a major mapping project, documenting where Jews in the early 1900s worked, lived, and prayed across the city. He teaches cooking classes. And he makes aboudaju, the Ladino term for salted and cured mullet roe.

Maslia’s rabbi, Josh Hearshen, is not a fan.
