Summer '16

“If I could sum up in a few sentences my experiences at Pardes, I would say that Pardes is a really wonderful synthesis of the yeshiva and the university. As someone who has spent time both in yeshivot and studying academic Jewish Studies at university, I see both of those strands brought together so beautifully in this environment, and also just the really wonderful, non-judgmental nature of the teachers and the kind of environment around, so that people of all Jewish backgrounds seem to feel welcome and comfortable. And I think that is a really unique educational proposition in Israel and in the Jewish world in general.”
