About Judah Monis

Judah Monis (February 4, 1683 – April 25, 1764)[1] was North America's first college instructor of the Hebrew language, teaching at Harvard College from 1722 to 1760, and authored the first Hebrew textbook published in North America. Monis was also the first Jew to receive a college degree in the American colonies.[2] His conversion to Christianity made him a figure of some controversy to both Jews and Christians.,+genealogy+italy&source=bl&ots=kXJveeiSCX&sig=RPfATPdKCtyEoTrp1e56Bn5LUBo&hl=nl&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjsxpv3vZLZAhWRLlAKHZCpBAkQ6AEIVDAH#v=onepage&q=Monis%2C%20genealogy%20italy&f=false
