Adam Mintz, a Modern Orthodox rabbi in New York City, believes that the greatest challenge facing twenty-first century Jewry is the creation of educated Jews who understand that the key to the Jewish future is the appreciation of the Jewish past. Toward this goal, Rabbi Mintz teaches Jewish history and thought in a variety of venues. He has taught at Rutgers University, Brooklyn College, Hunter College and is presently an adjunct professor at Queens College.
