I was a Rebbe with him at MDS. He was so beloved by students and fellow faculty members. He brought the learning to life. Year after year whatever I would teach about Parsha and Yom Tov students would always say “Rabbi Heber taught us that last year”. The fact that students would remember vividly all that he taught is a tribute to him and to all the effort he put in to inspire children.

Rabbi Heber was my uncle. One of only 2 uncles, and the only frum uncle. He is the only uncle I had a kesher with Bchlal. He was caring and giving and sweet. I don’t remember ever hearing him say an unkind word to me in my life. The family has had enough tzaros. We need the Geula now.

Uncle Asher you are loved and missed.

Terribly sad news… Rabbi Heber was truly a gentle giant. I ran the special ed department at Manhattan Day School where he was a beloved educator and mentor. Not just for students but also for the entire faculty. Everyone admired and loved him! He taught with a special love and kindness and emes – that we simply couldn’t get enough of. We often rode together back and forth to work, either in my car or taking the subway. Those private times together are something that I will always cherish. We shared stories, jokes, dvar Torahs, and our mutual love for… Read more »

As a graduate of Manhattan Day School who later worked there as a substitute “rebbi”, I had the chance to watch Rabbi Heber o”h in action. I think the grade he most frequently worked with was the third grade. A truly gifted mechanech. HaMokom Y’nakhem Eskhem B’sokh Sh’ar Availai Tziyon Vi’Y’rusholayim!

I had the zchus to work with Reb Asher in Camp Gan Yisroel, Swan Lake. I was only a CIT but he encouraged me to write Grammen etc. It proved a very valuable foundation for me. Such a nice guy and a real mensch. G-d bless his soul and his family.

Rabbi Heber was my fourth grade teacher in Manhattan Day School, many years ago. I remember the warmth and love of Torah that he brought to his teaching. Before winter break, he said that our only homework assignment was that we should all daven three times a day. It was then that I began to daven mincha and maariv every day, a practice that has stayed with me my entire life. May his memory always be a source of blessing for his family and his many students. Min hashamayim tenuchamu.
