Melton Core Curriculum is Coming Back to Greensboro!


Yes, the outstanding Melton adult education school is coming back to Greensboro.  These Melton courses are so fabulous and, by special arrangement with Melton and a generous subsidy from Temple Emanuel, they are more affordable than ever!


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 that integrates Jewish history, religion, ritual, language, ethics, philosophy, literature, theology, and contemporary Jewish life.


There are two courses that will be taught at Temple Emanuel this year: 


CROSSROADS OF JEWISH HISTORY – This course merges the concepts of history and memory in order to better understand how each has shaped Judaism today. With an emphasis on reclaiming the richness of Jewish history, the chronological exploration investigates significant crossroads where Jews took major decisions that shaped our shared identity and destiny.

THE ETHICS OF JEWISH LIVING – How do Jewish teachings shed light on contemporary issues such as the environment, inter-personal relationships, end-of-life decisions, and stem-cell research? This course explores the wisdom of ancient and modern rabbis, scholars, and thinkers, offering multiple Jewish approaches to conducting our lives in the communal and private spheres.   

These courses will be taught back-to-back (with a short break in-between) on Wednesday nights for 25 weeks, beginning September 18, 2019.  The cost is $100 which includes the sourcebook for each course.  These courses are being subsidized by Temple Emanuel. 

(The actual tuition is $243 per person.)
