Me'ah — a program of Hebrew College and Combined Jewish Philanthropies — is an intensive Jewish educational experience designed for busy adult learners of all backgrounds.
Me'ah Classic comprises 100 hours of class time over two years (Me'ah is Hebrew for the number 100). Participants are immersed in reading core Jewish texts, grappling with concepts representing cultural and political movements from four historical periods: biblical, rabbinic, medieval and modern.
Me'ah Select is a new program that provides an opportunity to enroll in a single-term class focused on particular themes, texts and personalities in history. With its low-barrier entry point, Me'ah Select seeks to engage those ready to take a first, small step on their path toward Jewish literacy.
Both programs are led by renowned Jewish scholars, many of whom teach at area colleges and universities. They are skilled educators of adults, able to employ their strengths and adapt their approaches both to the Me'ah curriculum and to a range of learning styles.
