|This Week In Mash-Up America|
The week of March 18, 2023 was karaoke with the sazon; all the Asian rage; and the grossest visual ever.
In honor of winter’s passing, our Jewish-American Mash-Up Franny Silverman curated stories of how Mash-Ups from a variety of cultural and religious traditions mourn and honor those who have passed, and includes a story of her own. The core shared value: Celebrate life.
