Naomi is a ROLE MODEL…
Naomi is truly an inspiration to young leaders…She is an engaging educator, talented musician and skilled programming professional (who) knows what topics emerging adults grapple with and empowers them to use Judaism as a springboard for personal expression and growth.
- Rebecca Shimshak, Former Program Manager, Foundation for Jewish Camp
Naomi Less is an exceptional educator, a multi-talented artist, and a powerful role model. Her work with our programs and professionals was evidence of her capacity to inspire and train others.
- Aaron Selkow, Executive Director of URJ Camp Harlam
Naomi Less is an innovative educator. She understands the multi-faceted dimensions of teen engagement and really interacted with our teens with sensitivity, intelligence and heart.”
Naomi’s Concerts Rock…
Bringing Naomi Less, Glenn, Shahar and Uri to the Denver JCC was the perfect way to kick-off our 2013 Summer Camp registration. Not only are Naomi and the band incredibly talented and engaging musicians, Naomi’s passion and experience as a Jewish educator is woven through every moment of the experience. It was truly a pleasure to work with them.
- Melanie Gruenwald, Director of Family Programs, JCC Denver
Naomi Less speaks — makes that sings! — to young women, and all her audiences, with authenticity, passion and commitment. Jewish Chicks Rock is totally Heebster!
- Lisa Alcalay Klug, author Cool Jew: The Ultimate Guide for Every Member of the Tribe
What a great concert – it combined beautiful Jewish music, original music and her lovely voice. Discussions…throughout the performance about bullying, self respect and respect for others really made an impression on (our teens). A pleasure working with her.
Naomi’s is a genuinely rare talent: passionate and enthusiastic about her music while completely ego-free on stage – she’s a certifiable anti-diva! She’s a serious educator who knows how to motivate and engage her audience. When every post-concert autograph-seeker – six-year olds and sixty-year olds – receives the same amount of time and attention, it’s because the entertainer is so much more than an entertainer. She’s written truly moving lyrics and beautiful music; she rocks the house with power vocals and absolutely grabs her audience.
- Jerry D. Isaak-Shapiro, Head of School, The Agnon School
Naomi rocks MULTI-GENERATIONALLY…
This was one of the best concerts we had here. Usually, we are very careful to book concerts because it is hard for the artists to engage the whole camp. But Naomi DID IT. It was fantastic. On the same note, one of our cabins chose the word ‘meshuga’at‘ at the Hebrew word of the day!
Naomi Less electrified our weekend with her music, her energy, and her spirit. Her rock concert transformed our retreat into a giant dance party.
- Dr. David Shneer, Director of Jewish Studies, University of Colorado & Programming Co-chair, Limmud Colorado
We loved rocking with Naomi these past two summers. Our campers learned the components of a song and the hard work behind writing meaningful lyrics. They came together as a group to learn from one another and work together. We can’t wait to see and hear JCCU Rock again this summer!
- Genna Singer, Camp Director, The JCC in Manhattan
Naomi’s music got Garfield Place rocking and inspired our audience of all ages to sing, dance, and consider their faith in ways many of them never had before.
