About Us

Kol Hamevaser is the monthly Jewish thought magazine of the Yeshiva University student body. Our primary contributors are undergraduates, although we include input from RIETS Roshei Yeshivah, YU Professors, and outside scholars. In addition to our print magazine, we sponsor special events that include speakers, discussion groups, conferences, and shabbatonim.

Kol Hamevaser was established in 2007-2008 by Mattan Erder, Gilah Kletenik, and David Lasher. It hearkens back to Hamevaser, a newspaper established in the 1960s by the Student Organization of Yeshiva (SOY) to compete with The Commentator. It later became a Jewish thought magazine, publishing its issues about twice a year until it was discontinued in 2002.

Today, Kol Hamevaser is dedicated to sparking discussion of Jewish issues on the Yeshiva University campus and beyond. The magazine hopes to facilitate the religious and intellectual growth of its readership. It provides opportunities for young scholars to grow in their intellectual pursuits and mature into confident Jewish leaders.
