Tbilisi: An Accident?Posted October 1, 2012 by Jan

Dear Rabbi Kantor, My Family and My Friends,
What happened today, was it an accident?
After yesterday's tiring journey from Bangkok to Tbilisi, after a late breakfast today, after several telephone conversations with two hotels, after a period of indecision and finally a decision, after waiting for an appointment who never showed up, finally, at about 11:30 in the morning, I begin my stroll in Tbilisi.
I walk down a hill high above the Mtkvari River, cross the river on a modern footbridge, and make a left turn up a cobbled street lined with restaurants and souvenir shops. Then I choose a right turn up a main thoroughfare. I stop to buy a hat. I continue my stroll while looking for a "second cup of coffee."
The sign says "Electric Cafe" so I take a right turn down a narrow side street. The cafe is there but just opposite the cafe is a large building. A synagogue!
