Finding Time for Faith
Asher’s schedule is so hectic that he almost missed the celebration of his bar mitzvah. His mother let him understand that everyone else in his family had done it, and so it would be good for him to also do so. However, the decision was left all up to Asher, and he was able to find the time in the last month of 2015, after just five weeks of preparing himself, in his hometown Paradise Valley. Since Angel had no time to spare for Hebrew school, his vocal coach took it upon himself to prepare him. Asher is very happy he decided to follow his religion, Judaism which he says keeps families together.
