We can’t wait to learn with you in person, in Jerusalem! We will be running a three-week summer program of immersive learning, back in the Beit Midrash! Come to experience:

  • A dynamic and interactive study of classic and contemporary Jewish texts
  • Classes in Talmud, Bible, Spirituality, Prayer, Ethics, The “How” and “Why” of Judaism and more
  • Talented faculty with expertise in skill-building
  • Inclusive community atmosphere with students from around the world
  • Tours in Jerusalem and beyond
  • Open to all levels and backgrounds

Please register your interest to make sure we keep you in the loop when the schedule is ready. For more information please contact

Note: The goal is to learn in person, but of course, reality guides us. In the event that this program will need to happen on zoom, we will update you as soon as we can.

I am beyond happy that I can call myself a Pardes alumnus. I’ve waited many years to learn at Pardes and it was well worth it. I look forward to the opportunities ב׳׳ה to learn more with Pardes in the future.

This is the first time I studied Talmud. It was difficult but well worth extending beyond my comfort zone. The teachers at Pardes are awesome and made the time fly. It always left me feeling like I wanted more time. The experience was stimulating, enriching, and challenging.
– Karen Bailis Saef (Summer ’20)

I finally understand why Pardes was so important to people I had talked to. It filled a spiritual void I have been feeling for a long time and renewed my relationship to Judaism and to G-d.
– Katherine Baker (Summer ’20)
