Learning in the Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning Transforms Individuals, Communities and the Jewish People
Inspired by the words of Rabbi Heschel, Gordon Zacks, z"l, identified the true mission of the school that carries his mother's name: to impact an individual learner in ways that also have a profound effect on the family and community. Heschel believed that leadership of a community should come from individuals who are learning Jews. In Jewish tradition, learning is not limited to childhood. Rather, life-long learning about the core values, essential ideas, history and culture of Judaism can shape family decisions, inspire wise leadership, and strengthen connection to community. The Florence Melton School honors this tradition with adult Jewish learning opportunities that transform individuals, communities and the Jewish people.
