What is Melton?

The Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning is a project of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. A text- and discussion-based pluralistic adult Jewish education program, The Melton School has partners around the world that operate individual Melton Schools in their own communities, including our program at CBB, launched in 2016 by Director Judy Karin.
