Rav Asher Manning teaches Tanach and Jewish Thought. Born in London and raised in Jerusalem, Rav Asher combines a British sense of humor with the Israeli mindset of thinking outside the box. He has a passion for teaching and broadening minds, always pushing his students to challenge their preconceptions and discover more of themselves.
Rav Asher learned at Yeshivat Har Etzion, where he was a close talmid of Rav Yaakov Medan and Rav Yoel Bin-Nun. He also studied at Yeshivat Maalot and Yeshivat Otniel, where he developed a passion for the thought of Rav Kook. After serving in a combat unit in the IDF, he returned to Kollel and received Semichah from the Israeli Rabbanut. Rav Asher completed a Teachers Degree (B. Ed.) in Tanach and Machshevet Yisrael at Herzog College and is currently writing his Master’s thesis in Tanach at Bar Ilan University.
Over the last three years, Rav Asher and his wife Lia had the zechut of being the NCSY Israel Chapter Directors for Gush Etzion. Rav Asher lives with his family in Alon Shvut.
