The Pardes Bonim Society

Bonim – builders in Hebrew – speaks to our role as builders of Pardes. The Pardes Bonim Society is composed of a significant group of Pardes supporters dedicated to the strengthening and building up of Pardes programmatically and operationally over the next three years.

Gold Members commit to gifts of $5,000+ per year for three years.
Silver Members commit to gifts of $1,800+ per year for three years.

By joining the Pardes Bonim Society, you ensure that more Jewish young adults will make powerful connections to their heritage, rather than drifting away from it. You ensure the ongoing infusion of passionate and knowledgeable educators and Jewish professionals into North America and who themselves will reach thousands. And you ensure that thousands more will live richer, more meaningful Jewish lives.

To join, contact Joshua Chadajo at or Jackie Frankel at Special Bonim events and more will be shared upon joining.
