Noa Tishby

Israeli-American Actress, Producer, & Activist


Actress, producer, writer, and activist Noa Tishby was born and raised in Tel Aviv and served two and a half years in the Israeli army before she landed a starring role on the nation’s highest-rated prime time drama Ramat Aviv Gimmel. She became a household name, appearing in numerous TV shows, films, theater productions, and national fashion campaigns, before she moved to Los Angeles, where she sold the Israeli TV show In Treatment to HBO, making history as the first Israeli television show to become an American series. She co-produced over 150 episodes, which earned a Peabody Award and twelve Emmy and Golden Globe nominations. A passionate political activist, Tishby founded the nonprofit “Act for Israel,” Israel’s first online advocacy organization, and has become widely known as Israel’s unofficial ambassador. She is the author of Israel: a Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth, which was released by Free Press, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, on April 6, 2021.

Robinson has succeeded in making JNF-USA one of the top-rated charities in the United States, and the leading organization for the land and people of Israel. He has been ranked on The Jerusalem Post’s list of the World’s 50 Most Influential Jews and oversees the organization’s groundbreaking One Billion Dollar Roadmap for the Next Decade.
