Happy Client, Happy Us

"Can you remember a teacher from your childhood or college years that made a lasting impression on you? By reaching you in some way through their words or actions? Who inspired or changed your life for the better? Ari Silver is one of these teachers, blessed with special qualities and abilities that can reach and transform students."

Ali Hirshorn, Parent

"I am continually amazed by his level of enthusiasm for his students, his willingness to make the time and take the time to make sure they are well prepared for their Bar/Bat Mitzvah service, and his ability to connect with his students and their parents. He consistently can be counted on to be on time, to be prepared, and to transmit his love of what he does to his students. They enjoy learning because he loves teaching."

Debby Lewis, Former Ritual Director, Anshe Emet Synagogue

"Our son needs someone who is patient and always optimistic about the situation. Ari is the best person for the job."
