Our Staff

Rabbi Noah

Rabbi Noah believes in the transformative power of Jewish time and ritual to help us build liberatory worlds in the face of empire. He supports our communities to grow and tend our roots and our belonging. He is a storyteller and ritualist, a crafter of shared decision-making for collective power, and a practitioner of nonviolent direct action. Noah was born and raised in this area, and has been shaped by the traditions of his Ashkenazi Jewish and Italian Catholic family, anarchism, multiracial feminism, and Black-led Southern freedom movements. Prior to becoming a rabbi, he worked as a community organizer and caterer: he was a co-founder of Bread Uprising Bakery cooperative, an organizer of the Demilitarize! Durham2Palestine campaign, and is the author of the cookbook Making the Table: Vegetarian Recipes to Nourish Community. He is a graduate of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, a member of the Jewish Voice for Peace rabbinical council, and a teaching fellow with SVARA: A Traditionally Radical Yeshiva. He is honored to serve as founding rabbi of Makom, and grateful to this community for dreaming and building towards olam haba – a liberated world – together.
