Son Amichai paid tribute to his father: "All I wanted was to pray with you in the terrible days after two years of not being able to. We were privileged to stay with you on Rosh Hashanah. I was privileged to go to pray with you in the synagogue. You were so happy. You opened the Ark of the Covenant. We returned home with great joy. You ran away from honor , not so that he would chase after you. You really ran away from him, because of your modesty. You did charity and kindness. I ask all people that even though a great disaster has befallen us, be happy. Be happy that you got to know him. He said that he commanded to be happy. The Holy One, blessed be He, wanted a person next to him who would pray for a people Israel. I love you father."

The son gathered: "A few years ago, father had a heart attack. He had to undergo an operation that we feared he would not survive. Father was ambitious. He cared so much for everyone. He gave to everyone who asked and to those who didn't. Father was a friend you could trust. He had A phrase he always said: 'When in the field, don't be stressed'. He was always busy giving love. Everything was always joyful. He always taught us to give without expecting to receive anything back.

Dad, you were always there for us.

now you are not here

You were supportive.

You were a man of the people.

You loved life so much.

You were such a loved man.

You would nail the evening wherever you went.

How proud we were of you for what you did for the mentally challenged.

We were proud to be the children of Asher Beharev.

I wanted us to be together for many more years.

The pain is so sharp.

You left and left us speechless.

You were proud of us and we were proud of you too.

You have done so many favors.

Thank you for the privilege given to me to be your son."

His daughter Einat also paid tribute to him: "On the morning of Rosh Hashanah we found you dead. The holiday turned into a nightmare. The anchor that held our ship broke. How will we continue from here without you? My father was a rare person and everyone here will agree with me. You came here because you knew him, you didn't come here For us. I don't need to tell you about him, you know him. My father was a source of pride. He connected with every person because he felt that he was closer to him than to the CEO's office.

He always preferred to define himself as a Beitar fan rather than the one who founded the cyber system in Israel. He was always positive, always smiling, always encouraging. Always uplifting and always encouraging. To his grandchildren he was like a second father, sometimes like a first father. And in abundance. How much charity. He gave every day charity that changed people's lives. How many loans he gave to people. He always said to give charity. How much he cared for mother. He always made sure to fill in the gaps when he was not at home. How many plans you had. I promise Go, don't be alone. Father,

I hope you will forgive me for telling you now what a great man you were.

How much I miss you now."

His widow Leah: "Which is happiness. It is impossible to quantify in a few sentences who you were. You always knew how to bless me. I will try to do everything so that the candle of our family does not go out. You built a glorious family. You were always a person of charity even when we had nothing to give. You always gave in secret, With modesty. You took care of everyone and you didn't take care of yourself enough. Asher, beloved of my youth, be an advocate of honesty for our family. May your memory be blessed."

Asher Beharev was 70 years old when he died.
