UPDATE: Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all Hebrew College Community Learning classes are now being offered online. Me’ah Classic 2020-2021 courses began in the fall. With special permission, it’s possible to join a class mid-year. To learn more, contact Marilyn Stern at email@example.com by January 6th.
The Jewish “conversation” stretches over 3,000 years, with each generation interpreting and reinterpreting the core texts of Jewish life. With 100 (me’ah in Hebrew) hours of coursework over two years, Me’ah Classic is a comprehensive, engaging, and in-depth adult learning experience that takes students on a journey through the narrative of the Jewish people and empowers students to become part of the conversation.
Me’ah — Hebrew for 100 — is led by outstanding faculty from Greater Boston academic institutions who are attuned to the needs of adult learners. Readings, text study, lectures and discussions focus on core texts from biblical, rabbinic, medieval, and modern times. Students receive a certificate during a graduation ceremony at the end of their second year.
Me’ah Classic welcomes students of all backgrounds. No prior formal Jewish education or knowledge of Hebrew is required. Financial aid is available to those who qualify, thanks to CJP’s generous support. For more information, download our brochure.
