Ongoing Adult Education
“At TAE we have an impressive array of both short and long-term classes for adults in our community. We encourage you to find at least one class that will facilitate your personal growth this year.”
– The Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning
DO YOU HAVE MORE QUESTIONS THAN ANSWERS?
Melton invites you to discover a world-class curriculum created by scholars at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Our outstanding faculty helps students gain a profound understanding of what it means to be Jewish, as we explore the texts of our tradition, ancient and contemporary. Our interactive, pluralistic classes are designed for adults at all levels of knowledge and background.
There is no homework, no tests, and no prep. You will explore, reflect, question, debate, and (re)discover your Jewish self in a well-rounded and comprehensive course of study in a user-friendly format. You can anticipate spirited dialogue and meaningful study.
New CORE classes offered in the community begin each September. Visit www.meltonwestvalley.org for more information or to register for classes online. Your questions are welcome! Contact our local Melton Director Pamela Rooks, to learn more about our stimulating classes for adults.
Talmud study continues on Shabbat mornings at 8:00 am, led by Rabbi Lisa Bock and Dr. Ken Elman. We are studying, taking our time and engaging in some very interesting discussions. Knowledge of Hebrew is not required, and all are welcome. Please feel free to stay for Torah study at 8:45 am, led by Rabbi Andrew Straus!
Join us for our ongoing Torah Study, led by our Rabbis. Enjoy exploring the beauty, mysteries and meanings of the Torah text, with sparkling discussions and commentary by fellow Torah Study students. Enlighten and expand your understanding of our Jewish history and our potential for an even more meaningful Jewish future.
Our Rosh Chodesh program gives women (13 and older) the opportunity to welcome the new moon and the new month; learn the background behind some of the most famous women in Jewish history through stories, songs, and articles; make new friends; and discuss topics relevant to women – all in the comfort and warmth of a home. Refreshments served. Bring yourself — maybe a friend, mother or daughter– and an open mind. Contact Shoshana Fischer or Charlene Wecker for locations and more information. Sponsored by TAE Sisterhood.
