Designed by scholars from the Melton Centre for Jewish Education at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, our world-class, university-quality curriculum examines Jewish texts in English to explore Jewish ethics, practices, history, ideas, and values.
Classes meet for two hours once a week. The two-year Melton program consists of 30 weekly classes each year. There are no prerequisites, grades, or exams. Graduates receive a Certificate of Jewish Studies from Hebrew University and are eligible to participate in all Melton graduate courses, alumni events, and an optional seminar in Israel.
“Melton increased my knowledge in a significant and meaningful way. I now want to learn more and study more. Because of the course, I now feel more confident in educating my children about Judaism.” – Melton graduate, 2009
“I have begun studying Hebrew and intend to become Bat Mitzvah in the next two years. Prior to Melton, I didn’t think this was possible for me. Now it feels impossible not to take this step.” -Melton graduate, 2009
