About Noa Tishby

Noa Tishby is an Israeli-American actress, producer, writer, and activist. A Tel Aviv native, Tishby served in the Israeli army before landing a starring role on the nation’s highest-rated prime time drama, Ramat Aviv Gimmel. After becoming a household name and appearing in numerous television shows, films, theater productions, and fashion campaigns, Tishby moved to Los Angeles where she sold the Israeli show In Treatment to HBO, making history as the first Israeli television show to become an American series. Tishby earned a Peabody Award and Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for her work on the show. She is the founder of Act for Israel, Israel’s first online advocacy organization and is the author of Israel: A  Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth.

Israel: A Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth

A “fascinating and very moving” (Aaron Sorkin, award-winning screenwriter of The West Wing and The Social Network) chronological timeline spanning from Biblical times to today that explores one of the most interesting countries in the world—Israel.

Israel. The small strip of arid land is 5,700 miles away but remains a hot-button issue and a thorny topic of debate. But while everyone seems to have a strong opinion about Israel, how many people actually know the facts? Read full description.

About Andy Statman

“His virtuosity is legendary, his versatility stunning. And as always, Andy Statman’s roots are showing.” – Adapted from Sara Eisen’s essay in the Jerusalem Report

Andy Statman, one of his generation’s premier mandolinists and clarinetists, thinks of his compositions and performances as “spontaneous American-roots music and personal, prayerful hasidic music, by way of avant-garde jazz.” This modest man takes for granted that a performer might embody several worlds in his art, and seems humbled by the fact that his music, like his story, is extraordinary.

About The Andy Statman Trio

Since his divergence from mainstream klezmer in the mid-90s, Andy’s journey has taken him, once again, to new places he’s somehow been before. He’s recorded a number of traditional Jewish-inspired albums, including “Songs of Our Fathers” with David Grisman, who says that the emotional Jewish connection he feels with Andy (“my rabbi”) is as strong as the bond he feels with him musically. In addition, there is his classical klezmer sensation “In the Fiddler’s House“, which he recorded with Itzhak Perlman in 1996. He has also produced more bluegrass inspired work, including the acclaimed “Andy’s Ramble” in 1994.

It’s a journey Andy says he now revisits with his trio each time they perform: “We’re creating an experience between the audience and us,” with their unconstrained meditations on hasidic music and groove-driven explorations of American-roots music. His collaborators include bassist Jim Whitney and percussionist Larry Eagle. They perform frequently at the Charles Street Synagogue, in the West Village. Listen now.
