MAZEL TOV TO MELTON GRADUATES

Congratulations are in order for Dale Gardner, Jerry Shapiro, and Roz Tessler, who were part of the graduating class of the Second Cohort of the Florence A Melton School for Adult Jewish Learning, Tuesday evening, May 21st. Completing the two year course of the fabulous curriculum of text based Jewish studies, written by faculty of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the graduates were presented with certificates of Jewish learning. The evening included greetings from Elliot Karp, President and CEO of Federation, an award of appreciation to Paul Schiffman, of the Adelson School, words from teachers Rabbi Kalman Schorr, Shlomo Sherman, and our own Yocheved Mintz, who is also the founder of the Melton program here in Las Vegas. As we become more and more of a learning community, we rejoice in the increasing numbers of members of Congregation P’nai Tikvah who commit to the Melton program. Although the commitment includes once a week attendance at the two- hour sessions for two years, there are no homework and no tests. Ask Jerry, Roz, or Dale or Meera Kamegai and Wendy Kraft, members of the first cohort, and you will hear the enthusiasm and joy that comes with being a Melton student. If you’re interested in finding out more about the course, contact Rabbi Mintz.
