All adult education is under the rubric of ALITI, the Adult Learning Institute of Temple Israel of the Poconos, a synagogue which is the central address for traditional lifelong Jewish learning.
The main ongoing study program is our morning component, which is called in English, the STARS ACADEMY. It stands for Stroudsburg Talmud Torah Academy for Review and Study. In Hebrew it is known as Yeshivat Zichron Yisrael Yehoshua, in memory of our Rabbi's beloved father, I.J. Melman.
