Rabbi Adam Mintz
16th Annual CSP Summer Scholar
(Aug 14-17, 2017 - see other dates for additional topics, dates)

RIETS, as it is commonly known, was founded at the end of the nineteenth century to train Russian and Polish immigrants for the American rabbinate. While the majority of the day was spent studying Talmud, the knowledge of the ""language of the land"" was included in the curriculum. The role of secular studies became a contentious issue and the resolution of this issue lies at the heart of the creation of Yeshiva College and then Yeshiva University.


​Adam Mintz, a Modern Orthodox rabbi in NYC, believes that the greatest challenge facing 21st 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, law &  thought in a variety of venues. He is an Adjunct Associate Professor of Jewish Studies at City College, New York and a member of the Talmud faculty at Yeshivat Maharat. He is the rabbi and founder of Kehilat Rayim Ahuvim, a Modern Orthodox synagogue in Manhattan.
