Jewish National Fund-USA invites you to join us in-person for our annual Breakfast for Israel. Learn about our critical work supporting the land and people of Israel and hear from Noa Tishby, an Israeli actress, producer, writer, and activist. Noa takes a fresh look on Zionism and the perception of Israel in media and will discuss a 360-degree view of Israel through relatable and bite-size pieces of history and personal stories.

Noa Tishby

Israeli Actress, Producer, Writer & Activist


Noa Tishby is an Israeli actress, producer, writer, and activist who starred on Israel’s highest-rated prime time drama, Ramat Aviv Gimmel. She has since appeared 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. Tishby has also co-produced over 150 episodes, which earned a Peabody Award and twelve Emmy and Golden Globe nominations.  Tishby was recognized as one of the 50 Most Influential Jews in the World by the Jerusalem Post and was on Hollywood Reporter's Women in Power list of international executives. Noa is a proud member of Jewish National Fund USA's Arts & Entertainment Task Force. A passionate activist, Tishby founded the nonprofit “Act for Israel,” Israel’s first online advocacy organization. She is also the author of Israel: A Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth.
