Rabbi Dani Kunstler was born and raised in Belle Harbor, NY, and then set up his home in the Ramat Eshkol neighborhood of Yerushalayim.

Rabbi Kunstler initiated the Torah Alive in 5 learning program after witnessing the void of Torah learning in the daily lives of so many of his students. With most of them not having the time or energy to set up their own daily learning schedule, he set out to make a program that would be easy to understand and effortless to receive. Starting with one of his former students, Torah Alive in 5 now has hundreds listening in on its various programs.
Rabbi Kunstler himself gives over many of the classes in the program, as well as overseeing the entire production of Torah Alive in 5.
