Melton Course - Jewish Denominations

Roll up your sleeves as we grapple with life’s toughest questions, like “Why do good people suffer?”, “Is everything that happens pre-ordained?” and “Can’t God make a miracle for me?” In just four short weeks, we’ll attempt a philosophical understanding of these timeless questions through the eyes of the rabbinic sages as well as those of modern thinkers — including ourselves. Start getting the Jewish answers; register today.

The course is based on “Where’s My Miracle: Jewish Traditions for Dealing with Tragedy,” by Rabbi Dr. Morey Schwartz, Melton’s International Director. Learners are encouraged to purchase the book separately. It’s available from Israbook Gefen Publishing House here. (Copies are shipped from Ohio.) The Kindle version is available from Amazon here.
