The Florence Melton class was something I had planned to take after I had retired. An adult mini school for Jewish education intrigued me but I didn’t think it fit into my life at present. I work full time and thought that Jewish adult education would be one of the many things that could fill my days when I had more time on my hands. I had visions of me falling asleep in class after working a full day. But I kept running into people who had taken the courses and loved it. Eventually, I decided to try it.
