The entire Melton organization congratulates Ms. Fine on her achievement, with CEO Judy Mars Kupchan commenting, “Jillian brings such an extraordinary commitment and great talents to Melton in Sydney, and we all are inspired by her example.” Rabbi Morey Schwartz, Director of Education added “Through Jillian’s professional ongoing commitment, Melton in Sydney is thriving.”

The Melton school, a project of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, is found in 48 communities globally. The University of Sydney has sponsored Melton’s high-quality adult learning for three years, and provides classes from the Melton Scholars Curriculum for graduates as well. As a pluralistic, non-denominational program of study, the University of Sydney is proud of the many students who have graduated from Melton, representing congregations throughout the community.

The annual International Directors Conference brings directors from the U.S., Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and South Africa and focuses on professional development, sharing best practices, and growing Jewishly. This year’s conference, The Changing Jewish Landscape, featured workshops and networking designed to support the growth and sustainability of Melton schools, as well as memorable presentations by rabbis and scholars.

The Melton School is run under the auspices The Department of Hebrew, Biblical and Jewish Studies at the University of Sydney.
