JCCMW – An Evening of Levity and Healing with Benji Lovitt


November 11, 2023    
8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Event Type

Join us as we come together as a community to celebrate the strength of the Israeli spirit and the power of Jewish joy with American-Israeli comedian and author Benji Lovitt. Throughout our history, the Jewish people have laughed to keep from crying, and Benji will share what Israelis are laughing at today, as well as discuss embarrassing Hebrew mistakes, Jewish holidays, and exactly what makes Diaspora and Israeli Jews different from each other. Benji’s musings about Israeli culture have been featured on Israeli television and radio and in outlets such as USA TodayTime Magazine, the Atlantic, the Times of Israel, and BBC Radio.

Benji has worked as a cross-cultural trainer with groups including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Masa Israel.

In early 2023, Benji co-authored his first book, Israel 201, about the magic, mystery, and chaos of life in Israel, which Mayim Bialik calls “fantastic.”

Books will be available for purchase after the performance and Benji will sign copies.


Due to the nature of the material, we ask that attendees be 18 years of age or older.
