Noam Mason (they/them) is a Jewish educator and Judaica artist focusing in nature-inspired Jewish prayer shawls. Noam is also a Tot Shabbat educator and USY advisor with Congregation Beth Israel in Worcester. They are passionate about organizing and facilitating intentional exploratory spaces where Jews of all backgrounds, centering those of marginalized experiences, can determine and celebrate what Jewishness means for them.
