Meet Noa Tishby
No Tishby is an Israeli-American performing artist, producer, author and activist. She previously served as Israel’s Special Envoy for Combating Antisemitism and Delegitimization.
A Tel Aviv native, Tishby served in the Israeli army before landing a starring role on the nation’s highest-rated prime time drama, Ramat Aviv Gimmel. After appearing in numerous TV shows, films, theater productions and fashion campaigns, Tishby moved to Los Angeles where she sold the Israeli TV show In Treatment to HBO which made history as the first Israeli TV show to become an American series. The show earned numerous honors including, Emmy, Golden Globe, Writers Guild and Peabody awards. Tishby is the founder of “Act for Israel” Israel’s first online advocacy organization and is the author of Israel: A Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth.
Students of all ages are becoming isolated, intimidated and afraid to identify as Jewish in the environment where they are supposed to feel the most safe, at school. A dangerous bi-product of this fear is the increased distance we are seeing between young adults and their Jewish identity.
Since 2013, StandWithUs Canada has been leading the way in the space of student-facing Israel education and combating antisemitism in Canada. We tell Israel’s story of achievement and innovation, lead the fight against the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement and educate about the complexities of the Middle East.
We are so proud to have over 80 students preparing to be ambassadors at high schools and universities around the country for the 2023-2024 school year. These students will work closely with our staff to bring proactive educational programs to their peers, helping to defeat false narratives about Israel, and eradicate antisemitism.
