Who Are We?

Pardes Alumni leave Pardes strongly connected to both Judaism and Israel, and they are passionately committed to Klal Yisrael, the entire Jewish community.

They go on to inspire, educate and motivate other young Jews in their home communities. Pardes alumni include more than 970 top professionals who work throughout the Jewish community, including more than 300 Jewish educators, 80 Hillel professionals and 300 rabbis across all movements.

Our graduates are transforming existing organizations, founding new organizations and building new communities. They also serve as leaders at major philanthropic, social justice, arts and cultural organizations, as well as activists across the political spectrum. By their example and charisma, they draw other young Jews into a Judaism that is intellectually stimulating, personally fulfilling, communally inclusive and morally challenging.
