Melton staff and directors joined the Boca Raton Melton community for a Celebration of Learning at B'nai Torah Congregation on Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2019.
Director Penina Bredoff opened the evening, followed by greetings from Don Katz, Melton Board Chairman; Rabbi Rachel Bovitz, Executive Director; and Rabbi Morey Schwartz, International Director of Education and Innovation.
Rabbi Schwartz presented a signed copy of Melton’s newest curriculum to donor Toni Sandler of Boca Raton. Jewish Medical Ethics: A 21st Century Discussion is dedicated in memory of Sandler’s sister Julie Gail Berger. Small-group learning from the curriculum preceded a dialogue with Rabbi David Steinhardt, senior rabbi at B’nai Torah Congregation. Rabbi David Englander closed the evening.
The celebration was held in conjunction with the 2019 International Directors Conference, held Jan. 20-23 in Deerfield Beach, FL. Photos from the conference and Celebration of Learning can be viewed here.
