About Benji Lovitt

Since making aliyah in 2006, comedian Benji Lovitt has performed for audiences around the world including Birthright Israel, Jewish Federations, synagogues, Hillels. 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.

Drawing from his experiences as an American in the Holy Land, Benji’s background in informal Jewish education, summer camps, and Israel programs enable him to easily connect with the widest variety of audiences – regardless of age or affiliation. Known for his “finger on the pulse” musings, many count on Benji for their online morale boost during both the good times and the bad.

Benji has worked as a cross-cultural trainer with groups including the Israeli Foreign Ministry. 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 grew up in Dallas and graduated from the University of Texas in the USA.
