The Melton School Core Curriculum is our signature two year course of study that provides adults with a comprehensive understanding of Jewish thought, practice and history. This transformative learning experience gives adults a framework in which to integrate previous and future learning while also challenging its students to find their voice amidst our diverse tradition. The core curriculum is comprised of four text-based courses that integrate Jewish philosophy, ritual, ethics, literature, theology and contemporary Jewish life.
Foundations of Jewish Family Living provides parents raising Jewish children with a thought-provoking encounter with the core values of Judaism. The curriculum brings to life the master stories from our tradition and the profound messages they convey. This rich learning experience enables parents to bring the Jewish conversation home to share with their young child.
Building on Melton's Core Curriculum, The Rachel Wasserman Scholars Curriculum focuses on a deeper examination of Jewish texts, from Biblical times to today’s leading thinkers. The in-depth Shiviim Panim courses expose students to the variety of interpretations of Torah from the classic commentators to modern day midrash. The Scholars courses in Jewish Civilization address a variety of important issues related to Israel and World Jewry through focus on historical and social texts related to the Modern Jewish experience.
