Pardes alumni have experienced first-hand the magic of Jewish life and learning in a vibrant community and are uniquely positioned to become network weavers, conveners of Jewish learning, and builders of intentional Jewish community in their cities.
The Pardes Alumni Fellowship gives alumni the opportunity to learn with Pardes faculty in an intimate learning community around the theme of “The Torah of Gathering”. Additionally, the fellowship will provide alumni with practical community engagement skills and resources that they will put into practice as organizers of local Pardes communal learning groups that support alumni and friends.
So much of Jewish life happens in the context of community, yet how often do our gatherings lack the warmth, inspiration and sense of purpose that we crave? In this fellowship, we will learn what Jewish tradition has to say about how to build community with intentionality.
