IsraelCast Episode 115
In her book Israel: A Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth, actress, writer, and producer Noa Tishby discusses the inconvenient truths about a country that has too many disproportionate perceptions behind it. Host Steven Shalowitz welcomes Noa for a discussion on the worldwide benefit of supporting Israel, the Middle East conversations happening on college campuses, and how Zionism and Feminism go hand-in-hand.
Born and raised in Tel Aviv, Israel, actress, writer, and producer Noa Tishby received a drama scholarship from the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and went on to appear in Israel’s leading TV shows, films, theater and ad campaigns. As a producer, she co-produced the 12 Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated, and Peabody Award-winning In Treatment alongside Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson. In 2011, she was recognized as one of the 50 Most Powerful Jews in the World and was on Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Power list of international executives.
After years of speaking and writing about Israel, both publicly and privately, Tishby has deciphered how to explain Israel in a clear and relatable way, which is portrayed in her first book Israel: a Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth.
She is a member of JNF-USA's Arts and Entertainment Task Force and currently divides her time between Los Angeles and Tel Aviv, and is a proud Jewish mother to her son, Ari.
