About Healthy Jew

Hello Healthy Jew,

Welcome to my about page, where I’ll briefly introduce myself and link you to everything that’s happening at Healthy Jew.

My name is Shmuel Chaim Naiman, and I live in Ramat Bet Shemesh, Israel.

Here’s who I am:

  • 35 years old guy

  • Orthodox Jew

  • Torah student & rabbi

  • brisk walker, hiker, and runner

  • health teacher

  • foraging guide

  • founder of Healthy Jew

  • husband of Tamar

  • father of Avital, Eitan, and Achiya.

Healthy Jew was born in January 2023 on the Substack platform as a weekly email newsletter, The Healthy Jew, which I send every Sunday morning (7:00am Israel time) to thousands of subscribers all over the world.

So before we continue, make sure to subscribe here (the free plan is fine for now):
