About Pardes

Pardes is an open, co-ed and non-denominational Jewish learning community, based in Jerusalem and with programs worldwide.

Students encounter and grapple with classic texts and traditions of Judaism while exploring their relevance to today’s most pressing issues.

Pardes empowers students with the knowledge and tools to take ownership of their Jewish experience.

Diversity is at the core of Pardes and students represent a broad spectrum of the Jewish world. The result is a vibrant community constantly engaged in honest, dynamic and constructive debate leading to serious personal reflection and growth.

“Ramah Darom and Pardes are the two institutions that made me the Jew I am today. These are the institutions that propelled me toward rabbinical school. They are the institutions I hope my kids are someday involved with. I met my wife at Pardes, and I made my closest friends at Ramah Darom. I fell in love with Judaism at Ramah Darom, and expanded that love in the Pardes beit midrash. The fact that it took Pardes to bring me back to Ramah, and Ramah to bring me back to Pardes is, for me and my wife, almost poetic.” -Rabbi Sam Rotenberg, Los Angeles
