The Melton School Core Curriculum is our signature two year course of study that provides adults with a comprehensive understanding of Jewish thought, practice and history. This transformative learning experience gives adults a framework in which to integrate previous and future learning while also challenging its students to find their voice amidst our diverse tradition. The core curriculum is comprised of four text-based courses that integrate Jewish philosophy, ritual, ethics, literature, theology and contemporary Jewish life.

The Melton School Core Curriculum is a comprehensive, sequential series of text-based lessons, comprised of four courses. Each course focuses on at least one major area of Jewish learning, and forms a thread in a carefully woven fabric which integrates Jewish history, religion, ritual, language, ethics, philosophy, literature, theology and contemporary Jewish life.

Year One

THE PURPOSES OF JEWISH LIVING – Why do Jews believe as they do? What are the big questions of life and how do Jewish thinkers answer these questions? This course explores both ancient and modern responses to many of the major issues of Jewish thought and theology.

THE RHYTHMS OF JEWISH LIVING – What’s the point of living Jewishly? What ideas, beliefs, and practices are involved? This course examines a wide variety of Jewish sources to discover the deeper meanings underlying Jewish holidays, life cycle observances, and Jewish practice.
