Our Sofer: Rabbi Asher Levinger’s Story
I was born in Safed, Israel - a poor city with very few opportunities for young boys like me. I struggled to find my place at school, and had many challenges at home with a Father who was the son of secular Holocaust survivors, and a Mother from Tunisia. When I was 11, my family was in desperate circumstances. Fortunately, we heard about a place called Migdal Ohr that could help us. Our parents were hesitant, but my brother and I really wanted to go, hoping it would be a better place for us.
