We are pleased to announce the newest addition to the ARZA World Educational Team, Mr. Uri Feinberg. With a remarkably diverse background in both formal and informal Jewish education, an extensive knowledge and familiarity with Israel and the Jewish World at large, Uri will play an integral role in building educational tour itineraries and contributing to the process that keeps ARZA World Travel a cut above the rest.
Uri graduated from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2004 with an MA in Contemporary Jewry; his studies focused on the communal, social and political organization of American Jewry and Education of Diaspora Jewry. He also holds a BA in History and Literature, and is nationally certified by the Israel Ministry of Tourism as a Tour Guide and Educator.
Uri was born in the U.S.A. but grew up in Israel. As the son of Rabbi Shaul Feinberg, Associate Dean Emeritus of the Jerusalem campus of HUC-JIR Uri grew up with a significant connection to the Reform movement. He has worked with Americans in Israel, and with Jews in America, often times straddling both worlds. For the past three years, Uri has resided in Boston, MA with his wife Meryl, and daughters, Meitav, Shira and Adi. During this time, he served as Temple Israel of Boston’s Director of Education, where he oversaw educational programming for the religious school and high school, in addition to family and adult instruction.
He has held numerous teaching and leadership posts at the Alexander Muss Institute for Israel Education and NFTY’s Eisendrath International Exchange High School in Israel, where he was Assistant Principal.
He has also guided a variety of tour groups in Israel and abroad, including Congregational trips, Birthright, March of the Living, private family tours and specialty groups.
His passion for Israel and the Jewish people combined with his impressive educational and professional background make Uri Feinberg a perfect fit for ARZA World’s Educational Team.
We warmly welcome him to our growing AW family.
