Join Us at The Base of the Mountain: The Melton & More Experience

Our tradition teaches that each and every one of us stood at the base of Mt. Sinai on the 6th of Sivan, the holiday of Shavuot. We heard the thunder, witnessed the flashes of lightning and then experienced a powerful silence preceding the word of G!d. It was at that moment that Am Yisrael [the People of Israel] entered into a sacred covenant with G!d, with the words of Torah and Jewish learning at its core.

Meet Adam R. Shevin: Sponsor of the Roberta & Jerome Shevin Speaker Series

Growing up as the child (the eldest) of Roberta and Jerry was wonderful in basically every way a person looking back at his childhood would evaluate it. I like to say I won the parent lottery (although we don't get to choose the numbers ;-) It was a very supportive and usually patient environment (sometimes a bit competitive when it came to sports, which more often than not-- ok always-- involved my dad and my uncles, especially at tennis).

The Shevin Speaker Series

The Roberta and Jerome Shevin Speaker Series was lovingly established in their memory by their son Adam R. Shevin and represents the areas of education Roberta and Jerome committed their lives and work to Holocaust Education, Jewish-Christian relations and Adult Jewish Learning. They believed deeply in the power of education as a unifying force and the topics of this series speak to that legacy.

Spotlight: Becky Herrup, Chair of Melton & More Adult Learning

Growing up in the “shtetl” of Miami Beach, Becky Herrup found it a perfect community for her to grow up within. Her family was deeply connected to Temple Emanu-El (Conservative Synagogue on Miami Beach then under the leadership of Rabbi Irving Lehrman) at the time, and to the entire Jewish community. Her parents instilled her with a commitment to Jewish ritual, holidays and traditions, which ensured that Judaism would become an integral part of her identity.
