Saar Pilosof was born to an average middle-class family in a small town in the northern part of Israel. His father was an orthopedic surgeon in the local hospital, and his mother worked as a civil engineer for a middle-sized company.
Both of his parents were nine to five employees, each of them in his own area of specialty. In no case were they considered wealthy people.
Nevertheless, they were respected members of the local community and actively participated in municipal activities.
Saar Pilosof made his parents always proud, bringing home excellent grades from the very beginning of his school days. Truth must be said, nothing less was expected from him, as he was coming from a well-educated family, where academic accomplishments were an integral part of his upbringing.
