Our Melton & More faculty shape the lives of our learners by creating powerful spaces for inquiry, discovery and connection. They design courses using centuries old sacred texts and teachings and transform them into relevant wisdom that serves as inspiration to help navigate our modern world. We encourage you to get to know them and join them for a powerful experience of Jewish learning
Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks (z”l) once shared:

“Teachers open our eyes to the world.
They give us curiosity and confidence.
They teach us to ask questions.
They connect us to our past and future.
They’re the guardians of our heritage.
The influence of good teachers stays with us.
They are the people who really shape our life."

Meet Rabbi Norman Lipson!
Whose courses bring the wisdom of rabbinic sages and Biblical books to life.

Rabbi Lipson was ordained in 1972. He has served on the national staff of the Anti-Defamation League and as spiritual leader of congregations in Mississippi, Texas, Hollywood (FL) and most recently Temple Dor Dorim in Weston, where he was the Founding Rabbi and now is Emeritus. For years, Rabbi Lipson has been a sought-after teacher in Broward and luckily for us, now “brings his talents” to Miami-Dade as well.

“Rabbi Lipson’s classes have brought me closer to the roots of my faith in a profound way. He is thoughtful and his courses are so interesting. I never miss an opportunity to learn with him!”
“Rabbi Lipson always leads an exciting and fun class. His style of teaching is very inclusive and open. He has a wonderful sense of humor and tells great stories. He brings Jewish history, culture, and wisdom to life each week!”
