The Soloway JCC, host of the Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning, extends a hearty Mazal Tov to its new roster of graduates — the third graduating class since the school’s return to Ottawa in September, 2015. Melton Ottawa Director, Rabbi Steven Garten together with Rabbis Deborah Zuker, Idan Scher and Daniel Mikelberg make up the inspiring faculty who guided the class through their two year eye-opening journey of Jewish learning. Due to the current situation, the graduation ceremony, traditionally held in June, will take place in the fall.
