Words on the Soviet-Jewish immigration, Russian-Jewish issues, history...
About Lea Zeltserman
Born in St. Petersburg back when it was Leningrad, I landed on the lucky side of history to grow up in Canada. I was raised between prairies and Rockies, in Edmonton, Alberta, and now call Toronto home. I'm a writer and cultural observer on all things Russian and Jewish — if it's about our immigration, food or history, I'm probably interested and I've definitely got something to say.
My work on on contemporary Russian-Jewish immigration, issues and culture, has appeared in the Walrus, Forward, Tablet, Saveur and others. I've also written on technology, food, and gender.
Public Speaking - Soviet-Jewish Food
I've spoken on Soviet-Jewish food to groups at Ashkenaz Toronto and (forthcoming) for Hillel Ontario.
