Traditional Melton Offerings
Locally Developed Courses
There is divine beauty in learning . . . To learn means to accept the postulate that life did not begin at my birth. Others have been here before me, and I walk in their footsteps. The books I have read were composed by generations of fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, teachers and disciples. I am the sum total of their experiences, their quests. And so are you.
WHAT OUR LEARNERS SAY
Congregation B'nai Israel
Former JCRC Chair
[Beyond Borders] is the best class I have had in my life, including four years at Dartmouth, three at Stanford Law School, not to mention three at Fairfax High school in Los Angeles.
You may quote me.
The Melton classes have helped me put my life as a Jewish woman in Sacramento in this century in historic, religious, and social context.
Mosaic Law Congregation
That was an amazing class!
Of course, I was in tears more than once.
No one wanted to leave!
