Rabbi Deborah Sacks Mintz
An educator, practitioner, and facilitator of Jewish communal music, Rabbi Deborah Sacks Mintz serves the Hadar Institute as their Director of Tefillah and Music, supporting those who seek to deepen, sharpen, and unlock their practice of empowered song and tefila. Both within the beit midrash and out in the community, Deborah strives to interweave song and Torah as integrated tools in the process of unearthing the grassroots creative spirituality of the Jewish and global people.
As a performer and composer, Deborah treasures the process of artistic partnership; through her work on the founding team of the Rising Song Institute, she has collaborated on over two dozen albums with a diverse array of voices in the Jewish soundscape, including two albums of her own original spiritual music, The Narrow and the Expanse (2020) and Yetzira ( 2023).
Deborah received rabbinic ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary where she also earned her masters in women and gender studies, and holds degrees in music and religious anthropology from the University of Michigan.
