As reported in the Pew Report on Jewish Americans in 2020, there is a growing sense of alienation between Jews
of different beliefs and different denominations.
The Florence Melton School is well-positioned worldwide to address this growing divide through Jewish learning, providing the tools for mutual understanding and connection. For this reason, Melton is proud to be launching our “Roundtable Learning”
initiative, formed in response to data from the 2020 Pew Study.
The Melton Roundtable Learning initiative asks our partners to create learning cohorts representative of all Jewish denominations
in their community, coming together for study and honest dialogue. Partner communities will choose a local teacher who is a good fit for this focus, an educator skilled in engendering group discussion and in capably facilitating community-building dialogue around emotionally charged issues.
Melton communities interested in piloting this exciting new initiative during the upcoming Melton year will receive from Melton specially designed digital PR materials, including a new unique logo (see above) for branding this special initiative.
Melton hopes to grow this initiative and spread it to Jewish communities throughout North America and internationally. In this way, Melton seeks to play a role in strengthening Jewish communities worldwide, a strategic priority of the Florence Melton School.
