Summer '16

“I didn’t have an opportunity for a formal Jewish education when I was younger. I came to Israel 5 months ago and I thought that it is a great opportunity to study. My מסע – Masa Israel Journey coordinator connected me with Erika (Pardes’ Director of Engagement in Israel) and she told me everything about different programs at Pardes and helped me to choose a program for me. I am now almost at the end of three amazing weeks at Pardes, full of studies, discoveries and meeting great and inspiring people. I am grateful for every minute spent at Pardes, so I hope I can say “next year in Jerusalem, next year at Pardes!”
