In the Soviet Union, Aryeh was a veteran theater and television director.[2]

Aryeh has been the theater director for the Gesher Theater, in Tel Aviv, Israel, and noted for his "special vision".[1][3][4][5][6] Gesher was founded in 1991 by Russian immigrants headed by Aryeh.[6][7]

In 2001, Aryeh was nominated for the Israel Theater Prize for playwright, for Satan in Moscow.[8] In 2003, he received nominations as director, scriptwriter, and set designer for an Israeli Theater Award for the production of Isaac Bashevis Singer's love story The Slave.[9]

In 2005, Aryeh was voted the 170th-greatest Israeli of all time, in a poll by the Israeli news website Ynet to determine whom the general public considered the 200 Greatest Israelis.[10]

In 2009, he was a winner of the Yuri Shtern Prize for New Immigrant Artists, awarded by Israeli Absorption Minister, then Eli Aflalo.[11] That same year, Yevgeny Arye won the prestigious Stanislavski international prize for theatre in Russia for his production of Isaac Bashevis Singer's story, Enemies, a Love Story [12]
