Melton Session: The Genesis of a People

Join the Melton Scholars Cirriculum starting at the beginning with Bereshit.  This course will dive into our texts further, to explore the themes of family and faith, honor and dishonor, and passions and power.  We will delve into the stories between the written words, the ones passed down over the ages through voices, emotions and passion.  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.

Melton Classes are co-sponsored with the MJCCA Lisa F. Brill Istitute for Jewish Learning and the Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning

Embarking on our fifth year, we are inviting all former students of Chai Mitzvah to sign up for this year’s program called Aseret,  the study of the Ten Commandments ( one each session).

We will start with two mini sessions starting June 17th. Class will meet monthly throughout the year in the Beth Shalom Chapel from 7:30 pm to 8:45 pm.

The fee is $36 per person which covers all materials. Our goal is to educate, enlighten, and encourage our participants to learn and to act upon those values and spiritual beliefs that create the total person.
