My Name is Asher Lev

If Asher looked back at his life growing up do you think he would feel as if it is more important to stay true to your vision than to compromise it, even if that means losing your friends and family?

In my opinion, Asher would have chosen his family. From the time he was a little boy, he was embraced by the community and involved in his synagogue. None-the-less, I believe his art would have remained uncompromised. His ties to family and community didn't revolve around the fact he was Jewish..... I think he just would have handled things differently, taken more care to make people understand his art, rather than hurt his family.
