A few highlights from Aryae’s 73 years on this planet: starting and leading at the House of Love and Prayer for R. Shlomo, 1968 - 72; writing and publishing a book about it, Holy Beggars, four decades later; initiating and running the Bay’s Area’s Right Livelihood Workshops in the 1970s; initiating and running Silicon Valley’s HR Forums  1995 - 2013; and at age 70, initiating One World Lights (OWL), a community of global citizens supporting a course-change for humanity by supporting each other. He and his wife Wendy convene the monthly Coastside Torah Circle.

He’s been somewhat compulsive all his life about bringing people together to learn from each other.
