The Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning provides the finest pluralistic curricula and educational experience.
With its international headquarters at the Florence Melton Institute of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a national office for North America in Northbrook, IL, the Melton School forms an international network of community-based schools offering adults the opportunity to acquire Jewish literacy in an open, trans-denominational, intellectually stimulating learning environment.
The Florence Melton School of Jewish Learning is the largest pluralistic adult Jewish education network in the world. Founded in 1980 at the initiative of Florence Zacks Melton, a community activist and longtime supporter of Jewish education, the Melton School initially opened with three pilot sites in North America. Driven by her vision, there are now 50 Melton Schools throughout the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand, attended weekly by 4,000 students.
Our current students and over 35,000 graduates tell us that Melton learning comes to play a significant role in their lives – impacting conversations with family and friends about life’s most important issues, influencing family decisions, connecting them more deeply to their community, and significantly changing the way they view themselves as adult Jews.
