Areyvut was established in 2002 by Daniel Rothner. Areyvut helps Jewish youth to fill their lives with the core of Jewish values, such as chesed (kindness), tzedakah (charity), and tikkun olam (social action). Areyvut offers a unique opportunity for institutions including schools, synagogues, and youth organizations to create meaningful and innovative programs. Through the programs that Areyvut develops and implements, the participants deepen their roots in Judaism by learning about Jewish ideals and values, and then utilizing these new ideas to influence others.
