Asher grew up most of his life in Monsey, specifically Pomona. At the age of 12 he was sitting in class hearing brave stories about Israeli Soliders when he decided he would join the IDF, at whatever cost . After graduating from Frisch in 2012 he made a pitstop at Yeshivat Ashreinu. At the end of the year, being a serious basketball player since eight, he parted ways with jersey's and hoops, and said hello to a uniform and gun. He joined the Garin Machal pre-army program & in October 2013 he drafted to the IDF and then to Golani 51 as hoped. Asher now lives in NY with his family, is making Aliyah in July and will go on to study at IDC Herzaliya.
