Ari Wasserman

Ari Y. Wasserman is the Executive Director and chief talent behind AriSafari. Since an¬†early age, Ari showed an interest and passion for animals. Ari graduated from Stony Brook University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and started his career doing educational programs for children at the Philadelphia Zoo and the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. He then spent many years as a Jewish communal professional. Over the years, Ari realized that the best way he could contribute to his community is through sparking the love of learning and exploration in children.

Zhanna Beyl

Zhanna Beyl is AriSafari’s strategist and public relations planner. She only occasionally¬†complains that Ari has turned their modest rented city apartment into a zoo. A long time ago, when Zhanna and Ari first met, Ari licked a slug while on a hike in the woods. This unexpected action was followed by an informative story about the numbing properties of slug’s secretions. So, in all fairness, Zhanna should have known what she was getting into from the very beginning.
