About Me’ah Classic
Me’ah Classic is a comprehensive, engaging, and in-depth adult learning experience that takes students on a 100-hour, two-year journey through the narrative of the Jewish people. 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 challenged me and I looked eagerly ahead to every class. My classmates became friends and close relationships developed… Because of my Me’ah experience, I am now deeply committed to further Jewish learning and see this continuing without end.– Stanley Steinberg, Me'ah Participant
The lectures are incredible. The love the rabbis have for their topics comes through in each lecture and their love is contagious. I leave the class eager to tackle next week’s reading assignments to further my education.– Bill Elovitz, Me'ah participant
