oySongs - Love Jewish Music


Noam Katz
Rabbi Noam Katz is one of the most exciting young voices in contemporary Jewish music. He has brought his high- flying energy and soulful melodies to Jewish and interfaith audiences across North America, Africa and Israel.

A longtime songleader at URJ Eisner and Kutz Camps, Noam has performed at URJ Biennials, CAJE, BBYO International, Limmud - England, NFTY Convention, and countless summer camps and congregations. He currently serves as the Rabbi/Dean of Jewish Living at Leo Baeck Day School and URJ Camp George in Toronto, Ontario.

Noam's debut recording, RAKIA, includes 12 original Hebrew and English melodies ideal for Shabbat and Havdalah. His second album, MIREMBE, SALAAM V'SHALOM, features guest musicians from Africa and the Middle East, and includes his Ugandan-inspired "Am Yisrael Chai." Noam's latest release, A DRUM IN HAND, blends traditional Jewish prayers with the live energy of a drum circle, with rhythms from around the globe.

Much of Noam's musical inspiration comes from his experience volunteering with the Abayudaya Jews of Uganda. He has since shared their powerful story and music with audiences young and old, incorporating the message of Jewish unity and tikkun olam (healing the world) wherever he goes.

In every setting, Noam is committed to creating strong Jewish and interfaith communities through the power of music.
