Melton Students, Faculty and Directors - The Best of the Best

A session from the 2015 IDC in Jerusalem.

We are excited to announce the opening of registration for the International Directors Conference, January 15-20, 2018, in Jerusalem!

Plans are well underway for an unforgettable experience that will fulfill our important agenda of professional development while nurturing our Jewish souls at the same time. An essential element of every IDC is the role of this event as an incubator of what is new and dynamic in Melton Schools worldwide. To this end, your role as a participant is vital. There will be many opportunities for networking throughout the conference, as sharing becomes a form of art at the IDC!

The IDC is in Israel every three years, and this opportunity affords us exceptional learning. We will study with scholars and leaders in the field of Jewish studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and other venues to explore the singular world of adult Jewish learning in Israel. An important dimension of the conference will be social justice in Israel and we will meet and learn from some of the extraordinary social entrepreneurs who are making an impact.

For the first part of the IDC, we will be staying at the Yehudah Hotel (in the neighborhood of the Biblical Zoo) in Jerusalem, and transferring to the Prima Royale in the city center for Shabbat.

Because the IDC is so important to your success as a director and to your school’s success, Melton invests significantly in the cost of the conference and in your participation. We cover 75% of the costs for hotels, meals, conference travel, and presenters and other experiences. Your cost is $525, plus the cost of your ticket to Israel.

Some limited travel subsidy is available. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if this help is needed.

Our staff looks forward to seeing you Next Year in Jerusalem! To register, visit www.events.org/MeltonIDC2018.
