Sponsor a Day of Learning

Remember. Honor. Celebrate.

Pardes offers individuals the opportunity to sponsor the learning that takes place in our Beit Midrash to remember, honor or celebrate any occasion. When a Day of Learning is sponsored, a personalized sign is featured in the Pardes Beit Midrash, an announcement is made to the student body, and the occasion is also shared online with our friends worldwide. In addition, we invite the sponsor to say a few words to our students in person or provide Pardes with a written tribute to be read aloud.

To sponsor a day of learning please contact jamie@pardes.org.
