The Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning is an exciting approach to Jewish learning. Developed at Hebrew University of Jerusalem, adult learners from all backgrounds explore classic Jewish sources in an intellectually stimulating, non-denominational environment.

There are no tests or homework, Melton is learning for pleasure, not pressure. The two-year course meets weekly for 30 week per year with superb faculty who encourage group discussion and exploration of ideas.

New Melton Year 1 classes will be offered this fall on Tuesday evenings at the Max M. Fisher Federation Building, Bloomfield Hills, Thursday mornings at Jewish Community Center, Kahn Building, West Bloomfield and Thursday evenings at Temple Israel, West Bloomfield.

The Susan R. Robin Memorial Scholarship is available for students in need of financial assistance. Additional scholarships are available through the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit and Detroit Friends of Melton. Payment plans are also available.
