Ari Sacher is a Rocket Scientist, and has worked in the design and development of ‎missiles for over twenty years. He has briefed nearly one half of the US Congress on ‎Israeli Missile Defense, including briefings on Capitol Hill at the invitation of the ‎House Majority Leader. He speaks regularly for the Israeli Foreign Ministry. Dr. ‎Sacher is a highly requested speaker at AIPAC events, enabling even the layman to ‎understand the "rocket science", and his speaking events are regularly sold-out.‎
Ari has also been a scholar in residence in numerous synagogues in the USA and ‎Canada. He is a riveting speaker, using his experience in the defense industry to ‎explain the Torah in a way that is simultaneously enlightening and entertaining.‎
Ari studied at Yeshivat Kerem B’Yavneh, and publishes a weekly parasha shiur that is ‎read around the world.  ‎
