Aryeh Adventures is a 9/11 memorial charity (501c) created in loving memory of Edward (Ari) Lichtschein. We take a group of special needs youths and unite them with mainstream peers, with the goal of them forming positive, long lasting relationships. Our Aryeh programs bring our participants to some of the most magnificent, inspiring, and exciting locations on the planet. Kindness, understanding, acceptance, and altruism are embodied on all Aryeh tours. Our experienced staff members lead group sessions on social education, giving campers more self-confidence, teaching them how to be better leaders and individuals.
All of our programs are shomer shabbat, shomer kashrut, have daily prayer services, and include unique and intriguing Jewish learning opportunities.
Our staff is the heart of Aryeh Adventures. Our programs are run by a highly selective group of experienced counselors, community professionals, educators, and emerging leaders. A passion for being a role model and guiding light to Jewish youth is a key requirement to getting an Aryeh job. We only hire the best of the best when it comes to our staff.
