Melton Greater Washington DC

Event Details

You are about to embark on an exciting adventure as you join students from over 45 sites in North America, the United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand that are currently part of the Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning network.   The Greater Washington, D.C. area has a unique collaboration between The Haberman Institute for Jewish Studies, The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington, and the various congregations and other institutions in the area, especially the Gesher Jewish Day School of Northern Virginia, to offer our population the broadest possible scope of offerings and locations.  Dedicated to providing a solid foundation of adult Jewish education to serious, sophisticated students, the Florence Melton School has proven to be an experience that changes lives and shapes communities.  Throughout its history, the Florence Melton School has helped over 40,000 adults achieve Jewish literacy in a comfortable, pluralistic environment.  It has inspired them to become dedicated learners - to explore and to experience, to challenge and to define what Judaism means for themselves and their children.  We look forward to another wonderful year of Jewish learning.

Jews in America: Insiders and Outsiders



This course provides students with the opportunity to consider the challenges of Jewish acculturation to American life, and the sacrifices as well as the contributions that have been made over the past 200 years. Lessons will explore such topics as the role of education, the Three Generation Hypothesis, Anti-Semitism and the Holocaust, the changing place of Zionism and the State of Israel, the Civil Rights Movement as a case study of distinctiveness and involvement, and other issues that address American and Jewish culture and identity. This 10-lesson course asks the question, “Is the cup half-empty or half full?” as optimists and pessimists debate the future of Jewish identity in America.
