Introducing Shimshon Eats Jerusalem: A YouTube Series
Following popular Jerusalem food reviewer Shimshon Sam Leshinsky on his quest to eat Jerusalem out of food
Recently, I began a creative collaboration of sorts with Jerusalem-based food critic and social commentator Shimshon Sam Leshinsky, whose near-daily postings on the Secret Jerusalem Facebook group have taken the city’s English-speaking community by storm and endeared him to a growing cadre of followers.
Shimshon Eats Jerusalem is a YouTube-based video series following the reviewing exploits of Shimshon Leshinsky as he visits Jerusalem’s newest eateries, offering his characteristic take on the city’s newest dining experiences (apparently he doesn’t like soup powder..).
Leshinsky originally hails from Australia, lives in the Jerusalem suburb of Har Homa, and has become something of a cultural icon in Jerusalem since he began posting his first food reviews in late 2020 on Facebook.
Undeterred by the pandemic and buoyed by a seemingly never-ending appetite for food and adventure, Leshinsky has spotlighted both immigrant-owned new businesses and worthy charitable causes in the city — penning more than 100 reviews on the popular English-speakers’ community forum.
Leshinsky tells me that he now regularly receives review requests from venues in the city.
But if you want to invite the blossoming and growing Shimshon Eats Jerusalem crew onto your premises, drop me a line.
