Why Melton?
  • During the past two years, I have experienced a powerful spiritual awakening and enhanced understanding of Judaism. The vibrance and passion of my Melton lecturers has been an inspiration and many of my unanswered questions between my tradition and theology have been resolved. I am left with a strong yearning to explore further.
