The core curriculum is a great place to start. The Purposes of Jewish Living and the Rhythms of Jewish Living are being offered as both daytime and evening options.

The Scholars Curriculum lets you chose to explore Bereshit (Genesis), Shemot (Exodus), Jewish Denominations, the History of Jewish Humor, Beyond Borders, Israeli Literature as a Window to Israeli Society and Jews in America.

There are even two classes exclusive to the Louisville Melton program: Magicians, Witches, Angels and Demons – in the Bible and Beyond; and Ruth, Judith and Esther. Both of these classes were created and are taught by Rabbi Laura Metzger.

The Melton faculty includes Cantor David Lipp, Rabbi Laura Metzger, Rabbi Stanley Miles, Deborah Slosberg and Rabbi Robert Slosberg.
