daph ben david is an anarchist diasporic Jew of Eastern European and Arab lineage, born and raised on unceded Kanien’kehá:ka and Anishnaabe territory, so-called Montreal, Quebec. Working as a substitute teacher in the public education system, and an educator with Jewish teens, getting to learn with and from youth is their favourite thing. They love Talmud as a portal through language and non-linear Jewish time, and hold a deep reverence for when learning manifests as holy grief. When not teaching, you can find daph wandering in the forest or running around as a stage manager.
