Shortly after going on the Israel Ride, an interfaith biking experience, he got to experience the Walking the Walk™ Youth Initiative. He found parallels between the way people of different faiths interacted with one another in both experiences. In addition to his involvement with the Interfaith Center, he continues his involvement with the Arava Institute through his membership of the Friends of the Arava Institute (FAI) board.
