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.

He is the rabbi and founder of Kehilat Rayim Ahuvim, a Modern Orthodox synagogue in Manhattan.
