"Impossible to Translate, But I'll Try," True-Life Israeli Stories with Storyteller Noa Baum

Sunday, June 4, 2017, 3:00 - 4:30 p.m., Social Hall

Celebrate the end of a successful CBH year and an informative Annual Meeting (to be held earlier the same day, with a festive reception in between events) with an afternoon of stories for adults and teens by award-winning storyteller Noa Baum.

A native of Israel and a former Davis resident, Noa will take us on a poignant and humorous journey through her life.  Growing up in Jerusalem is more than the Bible and war, and Noa will help us to experience a completely different side of Israel with stories of childhood adventures, outrageous matchmaking and all the love in between.

In Noa's own words: "Israel is often associated with conflict, religion or polarizing issues painted in broad black or white strokes.  It is either put on a pedestal or reviled.  Everyone seems to have an opinion about Israel, but few have ever experienced it.  For me, Israel is not a concept; it's my home, and my experience of growing up there is full of stories, not shrill sound bites and violent headlines.  I hope these stories will connect you with my Israel:  funny, normal, unique and full of many shades of color and love."

Ticket sales begin Monday, May 1;  please place your order below.  All tickets will be "will call;" check in by last name at the door.  For more information about Noa Baum, please click here to visit her website.  Contact Rabbi Greg at or 530-758-0842 with questions about this event.
