About Noah Solomon Chase
Noah Solomon Chase, an accomplished singer and musician, is based in the vibrant city of New York. Born in the USA, Noah's parents moved to Israel when he was very young. Noah was exposed to the rich sounds of Israeli and Jewish music from a young age, thanks to the influence of both his father and the late Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, who was Noah's next-door neighbor. Noah's father, an accomplished musician himself, founded the well-known Jewish group "The Diaspora Yeshiva Band" in the 1970s, which played a pivotal role in the emergence of Jewish music as a genre.

Noah's passion for music led him to collaborate with Carlebach himself, performing alongside him in both Israel and New York. Since then, Noah has continued to push the boundaries of musical genres, creating and leading two highly successful bands - Soulfarm, a Rock/Mediterranean/Folk band that has garnered acclaim both locally and internationally, and Citigrass, an urban Bluegrass band that has captivated audiences across the United States and beyond.

Noah's musical talents have taken him on numerous tours throughout Europe, Australia, and Israel, where he has performed in some of the most prestigious venues and festivals. Over the past few years, Noah has also established himself as a highly sought-after "cantor/musician in residence," bringing his unique blend of spirituality and musicianship to synagogues and temples across the US. With his infectious energy and song-leading skills, Noah has infused these congregations with "Ruach," creating an unforgettable experience for all who attend.

As a consummate professional, Noah is dedicated to his craft, constantly striving to improve and innovate. He is a true visionary, and his love for music and its power to connect people is evident in every note he sings and plays. Noah Solomon Chase is an exceptional talent, and his contributions to the world of music are truly remarkable.

Remember the Victims of October 7
Our executive director, Alan Klugman, recently participated in a mission trip to Israel with The Jewish Agency for Israel's Board of Governors to bear witness to the horrors committed by Hamas. He had the great privilege of meeting Shoshana (Shoshi) Chatual, whose husband, Avi (Avraham), was murdered on October 7 and hearing her experience first-hand. She feared that he died too young to leave a legacy and would be forgotten. Alan promised her during that visit that her husband's name would be remembered. During the Yom HaAtzmaut event, we will be signing cards in Avi's memory to send to his widow.
