Asher in Godel Thought

I no longer conduct tours through Yad VaShem, however I still give lectures about the Holocaust (“G-d Didn’t Die in Auschwitz” – Answering the Question: Where was G-d in the Holocaust?) as well as other topics; so, if you go to the panel [above] and click on Lectures (or ‘Audio’), you can find the topic (or ‘downloads’) which interests you.

I have retired from teaching in the Department of Psychology at Touro College in Jerusalem.

I taught Introduction to Psychology (101), Developmental Psych.(201), Social Psych.(102), Abnormal Psych.(335), Psychology of Religion (342) & Psychology and The Holocaust (541).

I now primarily only give guest lectures at Seminaries and Yeshivas upon request, and I also still see patients for counseling and/or psychotherapy.

I also teach a course “Symptomatic Psychology” at Ohr L’Golah at Ohr Somayach Yeshiva here in Jerusalem.



Regarding my therapy sessions in my clinic, I am a CBT (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapist).  I practice Brief Therapy, which means, in fact, working quickly and, chalila, not ‘stringing sessions out’. I only do ‘individual sessions’ even when I do marriage and family counseling.

I use as my diagnostic paradigm:

  •  – Eric Erickson’s 8-Stages of PsychoSocial Development,
  • – Aaron Beck’s Cognitive Therapy &
  • – (a ‘kosher form’ of) Albert Ellis’ REBT {Rational, Emotive, Behavioral Therapy}.

I have had very good success treating:

  •  – OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder)
  • – Phobias
  • – UniPolar Depression
  • – Generalized Anxiety Disorder (G.A.D.)
  • – ADD & ADHD
  • – Anorexia
  • – Bi-Polar Depression
  • – Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

and even …

  • – Asthma &
  • – Sciatica (Lower Back Pain)

Although I am known as an orthodox rabbi, I take a purely non-judgmental approach to my patients.  People who come to see me, no matter what malady or disorder, are simply people in pain; it is my job to help alleviate that pain and, hopefully, in a permanent way.

My sessions are 1 hour & 20 minutes (80mins.) long and I charge 395,-NIS; in US-dollars, it is cir. $120.00 per session.

My clinic-office is temporarily in transition.
