Teacher: Rabbi Aryeh Leifert
Rabbi Aryeh A. Leifert launched his Proverbially Speaking channel in January 2015.
Rabbi Aryeh is the proud father of Yonah, Ahuva, Maayan, Aderet and Reuven. He grew up in Teaneck, New Jersey, earned his BA in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies at Brandeis University, and spent two years studying at Yeshivat HaKotel in Israel.
Before making aliyah to Israel, Rabbi Aryeh served as the Assistant Rabbi at Congregation Rodfei Sholom, and as Director of Judaic Studies at the Eleanor Kolitz Academy, in San Antonio, Texas. Since 2012, he has been participating in a joint Israeli-Palestinian dialogue group, which has included expeditions to Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, and, of course, Israel. The program is sponsored by Outward Bound and Search for Common Ground, in order to advance peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
Rabbi Aryeh has his own Israel tour company at www.WalkingIsrael.com which offers on-site tours and Virtual Tours over the Internet. Contact him at his website for more information.
