At Pardes North America, We Believe that Depth and Accessibility Should Not be Mutually Exclusive
Pardes North America (PNA) seeks to embody both meanings of the Hebrew word “PaRDeS.” On the one hand, it refers to the four different levels of deep textual study, signifying that PNA always goes deep into text within an intimate community. Pardes also means “orchard,” open on all sides, symbolizing that PNA is open to all people regardless of Jewish background. An orchard is a place where people can find refuge and a deep sense of community. It is a place to be nourished and a place to plant seeds for the future.

Learning Always Means More in a Community
