Melton Adult Learning @ TBALove, Loss and Wisdom with Cantor Epstein and Press Pause: Rest Assured with Rabbi Vaisberg
An amazing opportunity to give yourself the gift of learning! The Melton Course, a Project of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, connects you to great Jewish learning. Core classes meet once a week for 30 weeks, beginning in the fall. The core curriculum consists of two one-hour classes, with a short break. Although there are no prerequisites, exams, or grades, participants are asked to make a serious commitment to regular study. Students register for one course at a time. This year two Melton Courses will be offered at Temple B’nai Abraham with Rabbi Vaisberg and Cantor Epstein.
To register, call Rhona Lillianthal at 973-896-6058 or email her at email@example.com.
Wednesdays, 7:30 PM February 2, 16, 23, March 2, April 6, May 18
The class will be offered as a hybrid, with zoom and in person.
The Jewish approach to mindfulness and self-care traces back to the roots of creation. The concept of a week comes from the Jewish marking of six days of work and one day of rest. For six days each week, we actively interact with the world. On the seventh, we reflect on our actions. We pause, rest, reflect and reboot.
In this Melton class, we will explore Shabbat and the role of time in Judaism. Along with other prescribed Jewish practices that ask us to pause, reflect and refrain from business as usual. Together, we will reflect on the practices that allow us to start anew, week after week, and year after year. Refresh with us!

There is no escaping it ― at one time or another, death enters our lives. What wisdom or traditions can help us cope with this most challenging part of life? Join us as we study and discuss how Judaism helps us make sense of and deal with illness and death.
