This weekend, Chabad of NW Metro Denver invites you to enjoy a Friday evening Israeli themed Shabbat dinner along with American/Israeli comedian Benji Lovitt.

Benji Lovitt
Benji Lovitt

Since making aliyah in 2006, comedian/ educator Benji Lovitt has performed for audiences around the world including Hillels, Birthright Israel, Jewish Federations, JCCs, Masa Israel Journey, and more. His perspectives on Israel have been featured on TV and radio and in publications such as USA Today, Time Magazine, The Atlantic, BBC Radio the Times of Israel, and more. During 2014’s Operation Protective Edge, his humorous observations on the war led to his being called in Israel “the only reason to go on Facebook.” His annual Yom Ha’atzmaut list of things he loves about Israel has developed a huge following and he works regularly with Jewish organizations to promote Israel.
