About Me’ah Select

Me’ah Select is an engaging, interactive learning experience taught at the college level—but without papers or exams—for adult learners of all backgrounds, whether you are seeking to take a first step or the next step in your Jewish journey. Our talented faculty members are known for their scholarship and dynamic approach to adult learning. They bring their Me’ah Select topics to life through in-depth text study and interpretation, exploring a variety of media, and rich discussion.

Me’ah Select welcomes students of all backgrounds. No prior formal Jewish education or knowledge of Hebrew is required. Learn, discuss, and build community with fellow adult learners.

Let us help you find the right course and instructor for your interests.
