Melton Jewish Learning Courses


Embark on an exciting adventure as you join students from over 45 sites in North America, the United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand that are currently part of the Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning network. 

Dedicated to providing a solid foundation of adult Jewish education to serious, sophisticated students, the Florence Melton School has proven to be an experience that changes lives and shapes communities. Throughout its history, the Florence Melton School has helped over 40,000 adults achieve Jewish literacy in a comfortable, pluralistic environment. It has inspired them to become dedicated learners - to explore and to experience, to challenge and to define what Judaism means for themselves and their children. 

Due to the generosity of an anonymous donor, we can offer classes at a substantial discount.

Within the field of ethics, one of the most challenging frontiers is medical ethics. While contemporary knowledge preserves life, modern advances have raised moral and ethical issues related to the sanctity and dignity of life - issues whose scope was unimaginable a generation ago. This course on Jewish Medical Ethics explores Jewish approaches to a number of challenging dilemmas including human cloning, surrogate motherhood, assisted suicide and genetic manipulation.
