BimBam’s digital storytelling sparks connections to Judaism for learners of all ages.
Naomi Less, hailed by PresenTense Magazine as the “Ultimate Jewish Chick Rocker” breaks gender stereotypes with her faith-driven, edgy, pop-rock riffs, soaring melodies and uplifting messages. Naomi combines her passion for education, Judaism and music to motivate audiences worldwide to work for change in the world. In 2008, Naomi founded Jewish Chicks Rock, encouraging young girls to pick up instruments and express themselves. Her strong character and unique voice amplify a powerful message to young women: be who you are, no apologies. Naomi tours, trains and delivers inspiring, custom-made rock-shops around the world in venues such as Limmud conferences (Philadelphia, Colorado, NY, London, Los Angeles, Atlanta), ROI Schusterman Program in Israel, Foundation for Jewish Camp, the famous City Winery Downtown Seder, various Women’s Seders and synagogues and JCCs across the United States. Naomi has been a songwriter, Jewish ritual musician, song-leader and rock-band leader for 14 years. In April 2011, Naomi released her new CD “The Real Me” - it's available on iTunes and www.cdbaby.com. Naomi is the most recent contributor to g-dcast.com with her new animated cartoon single. Naomi is a founding company member of Storahtelling and serves as its Director of Education and Training. Previously, she served as the VP of Programs at the Foundation for Jewish Camp. Naomi's undergraduate studies were in music and communications at Northwestern University. She received a Masters in Jewish Education from JTS’s Davidson School, completed a fellowship at the Institute for Informal Jewish Education (Brandeis University) and was in the first educators’ cohort at the Institute for Jewish Spirituality.
