Bostonian comedian. Jew. Sweetheart.
Alex Edelman’s first show, MILLENNIAL – about very traumatic stock photos and young people – won the Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer, the first show by an American to do so since 1997. The follow-up, EVERYTHING HANDED TO YOU – about identity and the availability of outlets in airports – was even more acclaimed: selling out its entire Edinburgh run and garnering the second best reviews of any comedy show at the Festival.
His third show, JUST FOR US – which centers on a meeting of neo-Nazis that Edelman attended in New York – has cemented his reputation as a writer-performer of impressive ambition and technical skill. In its premiere run at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, it was nominated for a Barry Award for Best Show. In Edinburgh, it earned a Herald Angel Award, a nomination for Best Show, and superlative praise that made it the best reviewed comedy show at the Festival in a decade.
Besides Edinburgh and Melbourne, JUST FOR US has had several extended runs in London’s West End at the Soho Theatre, the prestigious comedy haunt where many of Edelman’s solo efforts have premiered. The show has also been presented at Just For Laughs in Montreal, at the Bell House for New York Comedy Festival, Off-Broadway at the Lucille Lortel Theater, and on a three-month, COVID-truncated UK tour.
His album UNTIL NOW – released in July of 2020 – was warmly received by critics and audiences alike, and was named one of the year’s best by NPR’s Bullseye.
NANCY & MARK SCHIFF
We are incredibly excited to honor Chaya and Dr. Mark Horowitz at this year’s Night of Comedy and Magic. As pillars of the community, Chaya and Mark are an example to everyone that knows them of what it truly means to care for the klal and to care for those around them. In a humble and quiet way, they see a need in the community, and they fill it, without fanfare. Mark joined the YULA Girls board in 2019 and is currently a member of the YULA High School Board. Chaya and Mark have been actively involved in investing in YULA’s continued growth.
Mark runs a vibrant dermatology practice and has been practicing medicine for the past 22 years.
Neither Chaya and Mark had a religious upbringing, but after getting married were inspired to grow in their Yiddishkeit. Thirteen years ago, they moved from their home in Manhattan Beach to Pico Robertson to raise their children in a religious community and have access to a great Torah and Secular education.
Since Chaya and Mark did not receive a religious education, they are passionate about making sure Jewish education is accessible to all children, regardless of their financial situation. Most of their tzedaka & chesed occurs behind closed doors and directly impacts individuals across the community.
In addition to their passionate support of Jewish education, Chaya and Mark are also involved in organizations that help American and Israeli Navy SEALs.
Chaya and Mark have been married for 22 years and are proud parents of Levi, YULA alum Leah ‘21, and current YULA students Chana ’23, and Shayna ’25, Miriam ’26.
Please join us in honoring Dr. and Mrs. Horowitz and invest in the success of the future leaders of our community.
