As Eli tells us on his website, elicomedy.com, he specializes in performing at Jewish events, such as synagogue dinners, Passover programs, and other places where people complain there’s “too much” food.

A great program in Valencia CA.

5.0/ 5

A really terrific program from all standpoints: food, presentation, davenning and Daf Yomi, steak barbecues, interesting novel talks, and at night, a succession of talented comedians, a ventriloquist, a magician and a Klezmer band! Nice people too in the crowd of about 250 people. Hotel was very nice too and hosts Mel and Jeannie were always available and very helpful. Would sincerely recommend!

Great program at a decent price

5.0/ 5

Jeanne Litvin is the best. She has been doing this for years. No worries of running out of food or the craziness of other programs. She offers nice healthful food in addition to other Pesach favorites. Nice hotel near beautiful LA. Kids program is run by trustworthy people with tons of fun activities.
