Born towards the end of the Mandate era, Lass earned a doctorate in medicine at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He worked as a lecturer, and became Associate Dean of the Tel Aviv University Medical School. During the 1980s he presented the science-based television show Tatzpit with Yael Dan.

In 2011 founded N-UFiltration, a company dedicated to recycling of hemodialisers for various industrial and agricultural usages, as well as for providing affordable drinking water.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Lass opposed the lockdown policy adopted by the government, arguing that "I'm going to say something that's really hard to hear. For the sake of a few people who anyways don't have a long life expectancy, you don't ruin a country. You don't ruin the world. You sacrifice."
