Answers For The Wondering Jew (and others too!)


Melton is a school for adults to study Judaism through Jewish texts at the adult level. There are no grades, no homework and no tests - just Jewish learning and discussion in a welcoming classroom setting.


Join us to gain a profound understanding of what it means to be Jewish as we explore the texts of our tradition and engage in discussions that investigate issues of Jewish thought, practice, ethics, and history.


Our interactive, pluralistic classroom environment is designed for adults at all levels of knowledge and practice. We offer a comprehensive course of study built upon research and best practices in adult learning that generates spirited dialogue and an appreciation for Judaism – past, present, and future.
