About

Benji Lovitt’s observations on Israeli society, combined with his lifelong involvement in Jewish education, create a hilarious narrative that has brought smiles to faces all over the world.

Since making aliyah in 2006, Benji has been called on by Jewish organizations to share his hilarious insights into cultural differences as he translates both the challenges and marvels of life in Israel.

Benji’s audiences include groups such as Birthright Israel, Jewish Federations, Chabad, Nefesh B’Nefesh, Hillels, and more, and he has opened for headliners such as Jim Gaffigan and Elon Gold during their visits to Israel.

“Nobody understands Israel and Israelis better than Benji.”

-Lior Argaman, Masa Israel Journey, Director of Gap & Service Programs

His perspectives have been featured on Israeli TV and radio and in outlets such as USA Today, Time Magazine, BBC Radio, The Atlantic, and the Times of Israel. Benji has worked as a cross-cultural trainer with groups including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Masa Israel and 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.”

Benji is the co-author of award-winning book Israel 201 (which Mayim Bialik calls “fantastic!”), a member of the Schusterman Foundation’s ROI Community, and a frequent presenter at Limmud conferences.

Benji is the co-founder of TLV Laughs, one of Israel’s top standup shows, which features English-speaking comics from all over the world.
