He captures the essence of music – not just its notes but its colors and shades. With his knowledge and love of Judaism, Noah takes us on a musical and spiritual journey that fills us with a sense of completeness and wholeness.” Noah released his first solo Jewish album in May 2011, and the title song “Am I Awake” was a winner in the New Voices song competition at New CAJE in 2011. Noah’s album “Left Side of the Page,” released in 2013, has received widespread acclaim for its musical settings of poetic selections from the Mishkan Tefilah Prayer Book. Noah is currently serving as the Creative Director of Sacred Music NY, a nonprofit organization he helped to create that organizes concerts around New York City, bringing together spiritual musicians from diverse backgrounds to inspire interfaith dialogue and social change.
