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. Special Me'ah Classic courses are offered for those with a particular interest in film or Jewish women's studies.

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 Jewish history. Each semester we have several exciting new classes to offer to the Boston community-and you can commit to 1 or as many classes as you wish.  Come explore our new thought-provoking Me'ah Select classes for the winter and spring of 2016!

Me'ah Online is a new online program which will begin in March of 2016.  Taught by master teacher Dr. Marc Brettler, this 10-session class allows learners from all over the United States and the world to learn about the Bible from one of our most experienced scholars. We welcome all interested students to this special new class!

All of our Me'ah 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 adult learning styles.
