The Washington Post described Noa Baum as someone who "spreads cultural truths that eclipse geopolitical boundaries...". Noa is an internationally acclaimed storyteller, author, and coach. She uses mesmerizing voices, impeccable timing, and warm authenticity to captivate audiences of all ages with stories from diverse cultures and her own rich Jewish Heritage. Noa offers a unique combination of performance art and practical workshops that focus on the power of narrative to heal across the divides of identity and promote compassion and peace.

Born and raised in Jerusalem, Noa Baum trained in theater at Te-Aviv University, studies acting with Uta Hagen and received an MA in Educational Theater from NYU. Since 1982, she's been presenting internationally. Highlights include: The WOrld Bank; Kennedy Center; US Defense Department; AARP; US FDA; The Smithsonian Institute; Mayo Clinic for Humanities in Medicine; The National Storytelling Festival, Fabula Storytelling Festival, Sweden and other festivals, organizations, congregations, and schools.

Noa is the author of a memoir "A Land Twice Promised - an Israeli Woman's Quest for Peace" - winner of the Anne Izard Storytellers' Choice Award, the LDS Publishing Professionals Association Award, and a Storytelling World Award - and a new picture book "How the Birds Became Friends," on the power of kindness to bring peace. Her audio recordings won Parents' Choice and Storytelling World awards. Noa is a member of the National Storytelling Network, she lives in the Washington, DC metro area, and was voted by The Washington Jewish Week as one of the 10 most interesting local Jews.
