Whether you were born Jewish or chose Judaism, whether your Jewish education stopped after b’nei mitzvah or has continued, whether you consider yourself a younger or older learner, participating in Melton adult Jewish learning will enrich your life.
Melton-style learning is unique. We are pluralistic: We welcome participants from all streams of Judaism, including learners who describe themselves as “just Jewish”. We are text-focused: We teach from the core writings of Jewish tradition without making judgments about the “correct” interpretation of these texts. Our goal is to assist participants in reaching their own informed conclusions. We are committed to community: Our interactive classes support and encourage participants’ ownership of their Judaism in all settings of their lives.
The Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning is the largest pluralistic adult Jewish network in the world. We have 32 years of experience in helping adult learners take the next steps in their own continuing Jewish growth. We’re glad you’re here!
