http://masaisrael.org/sites/default/files/pardes.jpg

Program Description

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.
 
Our renowned faculty members affiliate with a range of communities. While the vast majority live their lives in accordance with halakha (Jewish law), they differ from one another in their philosophical, spiritual and practical approaches to Judaism. Through relationships with faculty, the community and Jewish texts, students leave Pardes with refined critical thinking, improved communication and interpersonal skills and more nuanced and sensitive perspectives.
 
The Pardes Year/Semester Program offers a rich framework for students seeking to delve deeply into classic Jewish texts, contemporary Jewish ideas and personal Jewish identity. Seminar-style classes and havruta (partner) study are complemented by trips around Israel, Shabbat and holiday experiences, social action projects, and guest speakers representing a range of voices.
 

Highlights

Classes include Talmud, Bible, Jewish Philosophy, Modern Jewish History, and more, including the following Specialty Tracks:
 
-Social Justice
