Hollywood Star Noa Tishby to Headline Jewish National Fund-USA’s Love of Israel Brunch


SAN DIEGO, Calif., May 6, 2022 — The land of Israel is “the most misunderstood country on earth,” according to Israeli actress, producer, author, and activist, Noa Tishby, who was recently named the Special Envoy for Combating Antisemitism & the Delegitimization of Israel by the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs.


On Sunday, August 28, 2022, Tishby will headline Jewish National Fund-USA’s 11th Annual Love of Israel Brunch, taking place at 10:00 am at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines, where she’ll explain some of the misconceptions about the country and address other important topics impacting the global Jewish community.

Tishby co-produced HBO’s 12-time Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated, and Peabody Award-winning drama, In Treatment, and was recognized as one of the 50 Most Influential Jews in the World by the Jerusalem Post. She is also the author of Israel, A Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth, which she wrote to fill in the information gap by creating an accessible and dynamic portrait of Israel.


In addition to the festive brunch celebrating the land and people of Israel and the Jewish community of San Diego, the event will feature Jewish National Fund-USA’s President, Dr. Sol Lizerbram, among other local leaders, who will discuss the organization’s philanthropic impact that can be seen and felt throughout Israel from the Negev to the Galilee.


“Visionary strategy drives Jewish National Fund-USA,” said Event Co-Chairs, Leslie & Shlomo Caspi. “Join us on August 28 to hear about our game-changing initiatives that improve the quality of life for all Israeli citizens, while ensuring a strong, secure, and prosperous future for the Jewish homeland and our People across the globe for generations to come.”
