Melton

Adult Jewish Learning

If you want to incorporate Jewish learning into your life, then this is the place for you!

Developed at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Jewish learners from all backgrounds learn about our heritage and culture in an intellectually stimulating, non-denominational environment. Our superb faculty encourage group discussion and exploration of ideas. This is an opportunity to explore classic Jewish sources from Biblical through contemporary texts. You'll investigate issues of Jewish thought, practices, ethics and Jewish history. There are no prerequisites, tests or homework. The school is open to any member of the community. Melton meets weekly for two hours per week from October through June for two years. 

Explore “Jewish” in our award-winning Melton School. Using Biblical and contemporary texts, we connect our past with the present, in a thought-provoking, dynamic environment.
