Since the Melton School opened in St. Louis, hundreds of students have graduated. These graduates are now found continuing their study in our agency's adult education program and taking leadership positions in congregations and Jewish agencies around St. Louis. In particular, a significant number of our Federation's Women's Division leadership are Melton graduates. Melton is certainly making a huge impact on the life of the St. Louis Jewish community.
