That Sunday afternoon workshop was the first time I actually got to sit and talk, heart to heart with an Islamic person in my life and it did change my life.

Bridging Differences Through Storytelling
Experience the storytelling model Noa developed to help build bridges for peace and dialogue in your community. Learn how listening to and telling the story of “the other” can help break through stereotypes and rhetoric as you find compassion and the possibility of change.
Come On In:
Welcoming And Understanding The Stranger
The world gets smaller but divisions deepen. We identify the familiar and recoil from difference. In this dynamic interactive workshop, we explore assumptions we make about “the other” using a model that cultivates curiosity and openness. With her unique perspective as a Jewish/Israeli immigrant working to bridge cultural divides, Noa invites us to expand our awareness, enhance our tolerance and increase cross-cultural understanding.
Storytelling To Build Community
Explore the power of storytelling as a community-building tool. Discover how the experience of telling and being listened to creates a greater sense of trust and connection within our communities and across cultures.
As a result of this workshop my feeling of responsibility to others is stronger.
