A son of two immigrant teachers raised in a home filled with stories of the Holocaust, Ari grew up with a keen awareness of the access to opportunities available in our society, particularly the children. Through this upbringing, Ari developed a passion in the development, education, and joyfulness of youth. Throughout his life Ari has remained intent on supporting youth, whether in the form of coaching Little League baseball, teaching, or serving on the board of Camp Tawonga, a summer camp outside of Yosemite. Now a father of two young boys in San Francisco, Ari
passionately wants to improve the public school system and work to rectify the inequities and challenges in the opportunities provided to children.
