Spotlight on Adult Learning

Posted on 11/08/2019 @ 12:00 PM

Our Adult Learning/ Melton & More Fall semester has officially begun and as a rabbi and educator, my heart is full as I watch our students find joy in their Jewish learning journey. Students share with me that their Melton & More experience is “transformative” as they unpack a passage of Torah, debate a section of Talmud, and find meaning in a midrashic tale.

Over the past two weeks, I have enjoyed traveling around town, attending classes and meeting our Melton & More community. We are blessed with a dynamic faculty-- rabbis, scholars and educators who bring to life the richness of our tradition and the wisdom of our sages in engaging ways each week.

The insights, questions, and discussions happening around our class tables are so inspiring! There is a wonderful teaching from the Talmud, “Only the learning that is enjoyed is learned well.” With close to 250 registrations, 15 classes, and 7 host sites, we are creating opportunities for adults in our community to come together and truly enjoy their learning as they expand their own Jewish knowledge and connect more deeply with one another.

We have wonderful synagogue and community partners that host us each week: Temple Sinai, Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center, Williams Island, Temple Beth Sholom, Beth David Congregation, Temple Judea, and Bet Shira Congregation. A huge thank you to each of them for helping us create a warm and welcoming environment for fellowship and engagement. 

This semester we are offering:

  • 9 Melton courses
  • 5 courses developed by our Melton & More faculty 
  • 2 Hebrew language courses
  • 2 My Way custom classes being held in people’s homes studying a topic of their choice with members of our faculty
