Why Melton?


Here is a little bit about why we have chosen Melton for our flagship programme at the Lyons Learning Project: We believe that adult Jewish Learning transforms individuals, communities and the Jewish people.

  • Judaism can be understood in a plurality of ways, and adults should make informed choices about living Jewishly. Melton will enable you to know, understand and consider the implications of the past, present and future.
  • Jewish adults are searching for meaning. Melton learning provides Jewish adults the language, knowledge and confidence to engage in the Jewish conversation and the power to influence the decisions they make in their homes and workplaces.
  • Judaism is a religion that values living and learning in a community. Melton creates these communities of learners.


In the past two years, through the Melton program, I have experienced a meaningful, spiritual awakening and gained a deeper understanding and love of Judaism.


Overall,  Melton has been one of the most significant and rewarding experiences of my life. I am excited to start the graduate courses next year, with a clearer understanding and a deeper appreciation for our religion. More than ever, I am proud to be Jewish and part of such a wonderful community
