Melton new





Melton invites you to discover a world-class curriculum created by scholars at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Our outstanding faculty helps students gain a profound understanding of what it means to be Jewish, as we explore the texts of our tradition, ancient and contemporary. Our interactive, pluralistic classes are designed for adults at all levels of knowledge and background.

Melton classes offer the “best of the best” in adult learning for the wondering Jew.

There is no homework, no tests, and no prep. You will explore, reflect, question, debate, and (re)discover your Jewish self in a well-rounded and comprehensive course of study in a user-friendly format. You can anticipate spirited dialogue and meaningful study.


New CORE classes begin each year in September.

Visit our website at www.meltonwestvalley.org for more information and to register online.

OurSpace: The Artistic Spectrum of Jewish Learning for Adults

Encourages adults (over the age of 18) with special needs, to participate in life-long Jewish learning through the arts, while socializing with friends and community. Throughout the years as professional artists come to work with us they have helped to discover many of our participants’ hidden talents. There is a growing body of research that points to the effectiveness of arts education to enrich our lives and it allows people with special needs an opportunity to develop along their unique paths.  In addition to this research, there is a long tradition with Judaism embracing the arts as religious expression. Meets Sunday 9:15-11:30 A.M. (VBS)
