A Taste Of Eden: Stories from the Jewish Tradition
Award-winning Israeli storyteller and author Noa Baum invites you to a celebration of the Jewish tradition with tales of wonder, magic and faith from Israel and around the world. With warm authenticity and her animated style, Noa combines Jewish folktales and personal stories that are uplifting and entertaining for the entire family.
Please note that the live version of this assembly is for students in grades Pre-K through 6th, while the in-demand version of this assembly is only for students in grades 3rd through 6th (since Noa can adjust the content based on age levels when live).
"Noa is fantastic! She brings her stories alive so that this petite woman actually resembles a lion, a turtle--actually any character she takes on, when performing--without costume! I cannot say enough about Noa--the teachers, staff and most importantly the students were captivated by her storytelling."
"Noa was warm and engaging. She established immediate rapport with the audience, giving clear cues for decorum, but lots of space for appropriate response and participation. Her stories were mesmerizing, her timing impeccable, and her connection with the children genuine. Loved her!"
"I appreciated the diverse nature of the stories Noa told both at the performance and on her CD. She brought in elements of the cultures that the stories sprang from and made the stories come alive with her dramatic telling of them. Noa is truly an exceptional performer."
