MELTON CORE CURRICULUM

Louisville Melton 2016-2017untitled_design_2.png

The Melton School core curriculum is a comprehensive, sequential series of text-based lessons, studied over two years. The curriculum comprises the following four courses:

Rhythms of Jewish Living
(28 lessons)


What’s the point of living Jewishly? What ideas, beliefs, and practices are involved? This course examines a wide variety of Jewish sources to discover the deeper meanings underlying Jewish holidays, lifecycle observances, and Jewish practice.

 

Purposes of Jewish Living
(28 lessons)


Why do Jews believe as they do? What are the big questions of life and how do Jewish thinkers answer these questions? This course explores sources both ancient and modern in pursuit of answers to many of the major issues of Jewish thought and theology.
