This is a week where our focus is not on comedy. Wherever we are, we’re still reeling from the international tragedy of loss in Mumbai, and although we feel conflicted about where to go from here, we are beginning to do that thing we do whenever there is pain. We keep moving forward.

Though separate in every way from this week’s events, the Koby Mandell Foundation is an organization devoted to moving on after terror. And there’s a great American comedy tour in town this week that’s raising funds to benefit the Foundation.

Stand Up For Israel presents Comedy for Koby, to benefit the Koby Mandell Foundation, which works on behalf of the families affected by terror.

Featuring top-level Hollywood comics Chris Spencer, Mike Loftus, Modi and Avi Liberman. For more about the comics, see here.

  • For those of you who don’t know, Avi has been bringing comics once or twice a year for the past six years. He and they are great…anyone in Israel who needs a good laugh should definitely make it out.
