Ask the cab to bring you to the corner of Pierre Koenig and Rivka Street. It should drop you off in the parking lot by the building with the Pardes Institute sign on the top. Go to the side of the building on Rivka Street and turn right. The first entrance on your right is Pardes. We are on the third floor.
From the corner of King David, Keren Hayesod and Jabotinsky Streets (Inbal Hotel): Walk around the Liberty Bell Park and veer right at the Sonol Gas Station. This will bring you onto Emek Refaim Street. Continue down Emek Refaim Street to the main intersection. Bear left onto Pierre Koenig Street. Pass Yehudah Street (first traffic light) and continue to the second traffic light (Rivka Street). Cross Rivka Street and you will see a sign to Pardes in front of a building set back from the street. We are in the building with the Pardes Institute sign on the top.
The 10, 15, 34 and 34 A come directly to Pierre Koenig Street. The 34 comes from the center of town and goes along Emek Refaim; the 10 comes from Katamon; the 15 comes from the Central Bus Station; the 49 goes along King David St. and then Emek Refaim.
Get off at the first stop after the “Delek Oranim” gas station (ask the driver) and continue walking in the same direction the bus was travelling until you see the building with the Pardes Institute sign on the opposite (east) side of the street. Or get off at the next stop which is the Kanyon Hadar (Hadar Mall), and walk back to the intersection with Rivka and cross the street.
The 77 and 77A travel along Emek Refaim. Get off at the last stop on Emek Refaim before the street changes names to Ben Zakai (ask the bus driver; it is the last stop before Pierre Koenig). Walk to Pierre Koenig and turn left (if you turn right, the street will be called Elazar HaModaii). Go two blocks to Rivka (there is a traffic light). We are on the corner of Rivka and Pierre Koenig in the building with the Pardes Institute sign at the top.
The 70, 71, 72, 74, and 75 come from the center of town. They are fast and travel along Derech Hevron. Get off at the Rivka stop, also called Tzomet HaBankim (the Banks Junction). Turn right and walk down the hill on Rivka, past Derech Beit Lechem (intersection with traffic light). Pierre Koenig is at the bottom of the hill. We are on the corner of Rivka and Pierre Koenig in the building with the Pardes Institute sign at the top.
