A Home for All

Pardes is more than a place to learn Torah — it is a leading proponent of open, inclusive, diverse and intellectually challenging learning environments, in Jerusalem and around the world. We believe that Torah is the inheritance of every Jew, regardless of background or affiliation, and that when we welcome multiple perspectives and practice constructive disagreement, the Jewish people are strengthened. 

Pardes is a home for all members of the Jewish community.

We cultivate in our students a life-long love of Jewish learning, the Jewish people and Israel, inspiring them to engage in Jewish life as communal and spiritual leaders, educators and active participants worldwide. The results of our work are beautifully reflected among the 1,000+ Pardes alumni working as Jewish professionals across the Jewish denominational spectrum and around the world.
