Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning

Temple Emanuel is thrilled to host the St. Louis Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning.  Melton is an international organization that sets the standard for high-quality, text-based, interactive Jewish study by offering world-class curriculum that informs and inspires students from all knowledge-levels and backgrounds. Melton offers adults the opportunity to acquire Jewish literacy in an open, trans-denominational, intellectually stimulating learning environment.  As pluralism is core to the Melton educational experience, all Melton courses are open to the entire Jewish community.   

In order to keep the community safe, Melton courses are currently taught on Zoom.  We will keep participants updated as the situation evolves.  

Upcoming Courses:

Bereshit / Genesis Part I - From Adam to Abraham: The First 20 Generations

Thursdays, 7-8:30 pm, 10 weeks beginning April 1

Faculty: Rabbi Elizabeth Hersh

Tuition: $295, scholarships available

These stories take us from the universal tales of the creation of the world, the flood, and the Tower of Babel to the foundational tales of Abraham and Sarah, and the beginnings of the Jewish people. The themes of family and faith, honor and dishonor, passion and power provide a rich exploration of our people and ourselves.
