Ari Cohen is a veteran of the Los Angeles Jewish Community. He attended day school, Shalhevet High School, and was a long time staff member at Camp Ramah in California. Ari grew up swimming, playing basketball and even attending high school at the Westside JCC, so the building is in his blood and his blood is likely in the building.
After graduating from Rutgers University, he decided to dedicate his career towards helping create innovative educational opportunities within many of the organizations in which he grew up. Ari completed a Masters degree in experiential Jewish Education at the American Jewish University before beginning to work at Westside JCC as an experiential teen educator.
He is married with one super cute baby girl.
