BIBI'S BOUFFE

While in NYC, Bibi Devours Traditional Jewish Food

While staying at a Manhattan hotel, on Friday the Israeli prime minister made a phone "to go" purchase from Pomegranate, a kosher supermarket at 1507 Coney Island Ave in Midwood, Brooklyn. The establishment is owned by a Satmar chassid.

In April, 2009, Prime Minister Netanyahu sampled a traditional, lavish Moroccan meal, in Or Akiva, Israel. While in New York, the PM went gaga over Eastern European Jewish food.

While staying at a Manhattan hotel, on Friday the Israeli prime minister made a phone “to go” purchase from Pomegranate, a kosher supermarket at 1507 Coney Island Ave in Midwood, Brooklyn. The establishment is owned by a Satmar chassid.

Shimi Schwartz and Shlomi Leitner, both employees of Pomegranate, told the website JDN that the PM insisted on sampling absolutely every item on the delivery menu, including gefilte fish, tcholent, kugel, and challah.

The two employees reported that the order had been made very close to the start of Shabbat, when most workers were already headed home, but senior chef Meir Iluz, a former resident of Israel, got on top of the order and made sure it arrived on time.

The order came to some $1,800 – not including the delivery tip. The premier appeared satisfied with the contents.

  1. Wonder if Bibi knew that Pomegranate is owned by someone who disproves of the existence of the State of Israel?

  2. I went to Midwood HS but that is not near Coney Island Ave so I really never heard of the Pomegranate. My favorite deli was next to the movie theater on Flatbush Ave/Kings Hwy where I got to see some great movies in my younger days. I do miss those tasty kinishes.

  3. Are they crazy, Mitchell, or might you be in error. I am asking since I have no idea?

  4. Diane it says at the very top of this article that Pomegranate is own by Satmar Hassid. The Satmar sect has always been vehemently anti-Zionist: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satmar_%28Hasidic_dynasty%29#Satmar_opposition_to_Zionism

  5. At long last Bibi and I heartily agree on something!

  6. Bibi is Prime Minister not Premier

  7. Charlie Hall says:

    In Hebrew it is רֹאשׁ הַמֶּמְשָׁלָה which would best be translated Head of the Government, not Prime Minister or Premier. Both Premier and Prime Minister are acceptable English terms in a parliamentary system such as Israel.
