Why We Love To Travel with Melton

  • Suzie Taryan

    Melbourne, VIC
    A wonderful learning experience at every level - touching the mind and the heart.
  • Bob Landau

    Pittsfield, MA
    The perspective Melton put on 3000 years was astounding... a perspective of who I am, where I'm from and why I am the person I am: a deep, rich understanding of the history of Israel and the Jews.
  • Nina Bonderow

    Philadelphia, PA
    One of the most wonderful experiences I have ever taken part in... The Melton seminar provides the perfect atmosphere for knowledge and friendship to blossom. It is a most worthwhile experience.
  • Errol Lipschitz

    Vancouver, BC
    The seminar is a treat for anyone and was filled with opportunities to create memories for a lifetime… you deserve to spoil yourself. You will not be disappointed as so much of the program is brought to life by the on-site visits and thoughtful presentations. The seminar left me glowing.
  • Ruth Starr

    London, UK
    I didn't enjoy it - I loved it. I've been to Israel so many times before, but this was so different... very stimulating and wonderful. Thank you!
  • Linda Woloshin

    Chicago, IL
    An outstanding learning experience among compatible students led by an amazing teacher whose enthusiasm and depth of knowledge cannot be compared to any tour I have ever taken before.
  • Bobbie Blau

    West Hills, CA
    I am richer for the friendships made and the knowledge gained. My understanding of the history and the future of Israel has been greatly deepened by "living" the text in context throughout the country. Perhaps, though, it has raised many more questions that will require at least one more Melton seminar to answer... it has complicated my understanding!
  • Anne Rothman

    NJ
    I loved the inclusion of poetry and literature, as well as Biblical sources: they made the ancient and the current Israel come alive.
  • Buzz Krovitz

    Denver, CO
    This was my fifth visit to Israel and the best… Everything fit together like pieces of a puzzle.
