Comedy For

As many of you know, Avi Liberman has lead a group of comedians to Israel the past 8 years, with all proceeds going to Tzedakah. The last two tours have benefited the Koby Mandell Foundation, an organization that has a summer camp for children who have lost relatives to terrorism, councils parents who have lost children, has a grieving mothers group, and is an organization near and dear to our hearts here at YICC.

The last tour raised over $30,000 while making thousands of people happy, and creating new positive shlichim for Israel all at once, as many of the comedians Avi brings are not Jewish. This was all possible because of many generous donors.

The upcoming tour in December however has a problem in that the usual donation of miles covering the tickets for travel will not be available.
Avi has gone back to doing what he used to, fundraising for this important endeavor.
We at YICC are looking to help Avi raise approximately $3500.
To help please make checks out to YICC Gmach noted “Koby Mandell.

For any questions please contact Avi at 310 785-9242 or

The website for the upcoming tour is
All the info is up there, and ticket purchasing can be done directly from the site.

A message from Avi:
If you are not going to be in Israel at the show but would like to make a donation to the charity anyway, just click on “order tickets” and when it asks for “which show”, the pull-down menu has a “donate” option.

If I don’t see you there, feel free to spread the word.
