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.

The course is based on “Where’s My Miracle: Jewish Traditions for Dealing with Tragedy,” by Rabbi Dr. Morey Schwartz, Melton’s International Director.
