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.   

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.

Melton Educator Fellowship-Graphic Only.

Melton St. Louis is creating a cohort of talented teachers and youth professionals who want to deepen their practice, engage in rich Jewish learning, and be part of a diverse and supportive community of colleagues. The Fellowship is a professional learning opportunity for those who crave something deeper than a one-off training or webinar series can provide and who are able to commit to a one-evening-per-week experience over the 2021-22 school year.

The Fellowship is open to part-time or full-time teachers or youth professionals in any St. Louis Jewish preschools, religious schools, day schools, youth groups, and other youth and teen organizations.
