Noam vShalom believes in a future where empowered individuals can create balanced, harmonious, and sustainable communities through a focus on personal well-being and mutual understanding. We hope to serve as a catalyst for this revolution, to create an empowered culture of giving now, for ourselves and for our children.
For us, the name Noam vShalom [noh-ahm vuh-shah-lohm] encompasses our entire mission. While each word possesses a wealth of meaning, together they form the idea of "harmony and balance." We chose our name from the Hebrew language, as it translates more as a concept than as simple words. Noam () connotes kindness in human action, pleasantness to the senses, and harmony in music or art. Shalom () connotes completeness, wholeness, good health, wellbeing, balance between forces, harmony in human interaction, peace, tranquility, and contentment.
