What do you do after leaving the only world you've ever known? Ari will reflect on the outcomes of his complicated journey away from a Hasidic upbringing. He now focuses on helping others by sharing his hard-earned lessons as a survivor of sexual abuse and substance abuse, and has become an advocate for improved educational standards in Hasidic schools in NYC.
