"Programs for Youth Naomi is truly an inspiration to young leaders… She is an engaging educator, talented musician and skilled programming professional (who) knows what topics emerging adults grapple with and empowers them to use Judaism as a springboard for personal expression and growth." - Rebecca Shimshak, Former Program Manager, Foundation for Jewish Camp
"Naomi Less is an exceptional educator, a multi-talented artist, and a powerful role model. Her work with our programs and professionals was evidence of her capacity to inspire and train others." - Aaron Selkow, Executive Director of URJ Camp Harlam
"Naomi Less is an innovative educator. She understands the multi-faceted dimensions of teen engagement and really interacted with our teens with sensitivity, intelligence and heart." - Abbe Marcus, Director
"Naomi Less and her Jewish Chicks Rock program has been a “force of nature”, leading both campers and staff to become more confident in expressing themselves and feeling comfortable with who they are. She is an exceptional role model to girls, and a talented artist who inspires both campers and staff alike. She caringly selects campers, educates and empowers them to learn – some with no experience at all. She empowers other campers to take on technical, marketing, promotional and design aspects of the bands. The girls work together using Judaism as a springboard for their music, personal expression and subsequent growth. Campers rehearse and engage in deep, fun discussions about relevant issues such as self-esteem, body image, respect for others and female empowerment. This is truly one of the highlights of the summer for all." Jen Falik Raines, Program Director, Camp Louise
