An Evening of Levity and Healing with Benji Lovitt


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.

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

Refreshments will be served.

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