Noa Kolomer

Title: Director of Israel Engagement

Phone number: 212-853-1588

Noa Kolomer is excited to join Columbia/Barnard Hillel as Director of Israel Engagement. Her super power is living in the grey areas of the Israel space and her weakness is chocolate.

Noa has over 20 years of experience as a Jewish/Israel educator. Born and raised in Israel by a Canadian father and American mother she feels she really had the best of all worlds. She was a founding member of Hillel at Ben Gurion University and served 3 years as the Senior Shlicha (Jewish Agency Emisssry) for Liberal Judaism in the UK. Noa sat on the national board of the Reform Movement in Israel and is very active in the Religion and State activism space. Previous to joining the incredibly talented team at Columbia/Barnard Hillel, Noa was part of the Jewish Agency team supervising and mentoring Israel Fellows across North America.

When Noa isn’t discussing the current effect of Israeli politics on the future of Jewish generations and debating the changes that would allow Israel to live up to the Declaration of Independence set by it’s forefathers and mothers, Noa can be found in her Astoria kitchen whipping up another batch of chocolate chip cookies or finding ways to spend more time with her 6 nieces and nephews.
