Daily Giving to Present a Night of Laughter With Elon Gold, Eli Lebowicz and Eli Beer

Elon Gold, a noted comedian and television actor, will be the featured performer in “A Night of Laughter” on Saturday night, December 5, at 9 p.m. Eastern time.

The program, which will also feature comedian Eli Lebowicz and hosted by Eli Beer, founder of United Hatzalah, is being sponsored by Daily Giving, a unique effort in which one can automatically donate $1 a day to tzedaka. The comedy night, which will be broadcast via Zoom, is free for everyone.

“In the past two years, we have signed up more than 4,000 individuals who are now giving $1 a day to tzedaka,” said Dr. Jonathan Donath, the founder of Daily Giving. “This program is our way of saying thank you to our loyal members, and to make others aware of the important work we are doing to support 42 deserving charities, each of whom is now receiving over $35,000 a year from Daily Giving.”

Gold has starred in the television series “Stacked” and “In-Laws.” He is well known for his impressions of Howard Stern, Jeff Goldblum and Jay Leno. He had a starring role in the HBO production “Crashin” and has written several movie and television screenplays. He attended Westchester Day School and Marsha Stern Talmudical Academy.

Lebowicz, who grew up in Chicago, is a standup comedian and comedy writer. In addition to winning Yeshiva University’s Last Comic Standing contest in 2009, he also co-founded The Quipster, Yeshiva University’s first satire newspaper. He performs at college campuses, comedy clubs, shuls, Pesach programs and other Jewish venues.

Beer serves as the president of Friends of United Hatzalah, and is instrumental in making sure that the organization provides emergency medical care as a first responder throughout Israel.

In addition to promoting this program to its 4,000 members, Daily Giving is allowing all of its 42 recipient charitable organizations to promote the online program to their own donor lists. “By providing our partner organizations with the materials to promote this to their lists, we are allowing them to provide a unique benefit to their own members,” said Donath.

Donath also said that everyone who either registers for the comedy program or signs up as a Daily Giving member will automatically be entered into a contest to win an Apple watch.

Daily Giving is a simple but powerful concept. Once a donor signs up, he or she receives an email, telling them which of the 42 participating charities received the Daily Giving donation that day, and how much was donated. As the number of donors grows, the amount of each daily donation grows—even though each person’s donation amount remains the same.

“It automates the tzedaka process so that you can easily perform the mitzvah of tzedaka every day, 365 days a year, and can make an even bigger impact when your dollars are pooled with everyone else’s. Where else can $1 a day impact millions of Jews around the world?” said Donath.

Daily Giving has already given out more than $1,000,000 in donations, and is scheduled to donate more than $1,500,000 in the next 365 days.
