The Mintz Family Foundation for Creative Jewish Education was established in 2001 by the Mintz Family for the purpose of supporting creative Jewish education through an annual monetary award.  The Foundation addresses itself to innovations on all levels of Jewish education, formal, informal, pre-school through graduate school.  The Foundation hopes to help encourage innovation throughout the field of Jewish education by recognizing the creativity of an individual or organization.

The Ner Tamid in our logo represents the three elements of our vision: Torah, Learning, and Creativity.
