Year '11-'12

“I came to Pardes because I wanted to see if the social justice I was working towards in the Jewish community was actually a Jewish value. I wanted a textual tradition to underlie the emotional connection I felt towards Judaism. At Pardes I found a space – and amazing people to share it with – where I was able to find out both ‘what Judaism is’ and ‘what Judaism can be.'”
