Devir Kahan

Devir Kahan is the Editor In Chief of Daf Aleph, founding it after the recognition that no such easily-accessible online resource on matters of Jewish thought and machshavah existed. He is currently pursuing a degree at Yeshiva University, and is far too much of an over-thinker to write much more for his bio.

Zach Sterman

Zach Sterman hails from New Rochelle, New York. After procrastinating through four years at MTA, he spent 1.5 years in Yeshivat Hakotel before returning to attend Yeshiva University. In a rebellion against the notion that every YU student must be an investment banker, Zach has chosen to pursue his passion through a political science major. He hopes that he won’t regret that decision in the future.
