A Melton Teacher Reflects on “Learning Loud”

A gifted educator in the Detroit Jewish community for almost 20 years, Ruth Weiss Bergman has taught in the Melton School, Midrasha College of Jewish Studies, Hillel Day School, Frankel Jewish Academy and Women's Day of Learning.
 Mother of four daughters, Ruth lives in Farmington Hills with her husband, Rabbi Aaron Bergman, of Adat Shalom Synagogue. For me, the best part of teaching adults is always the discussion. No matter what the subject—ethics, history, Talmud—we always study together and teach one another.
