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. After spending a life-changing year in Israel on Young Judaea Year Course, Benji graduatd from the University of Texas at Austin where he assumed a leadership role at the campus Hillel and befriended every Israeli he could find. Since making aliyah in 2006, Benji has been called on by Jewish organizations to engage their participants in thoughtful and humorous discourse to break down the differences between Jews in Israel and abroad. Benji’s keen insights shed new, exhilarating light on both the challenges and marvels of life in Israel.
