Visiting Groups '12
“At Pardes I experience a serious learning environment. I am impressed by the atmosphere of openness and respect in the beit midrash and by the variety of people around me. There is a feeling of warmth both among students and faculty. Pardes teachers often come over to me to say hello and to ask what I’m learning. I have been surprised by how often Pardes students approach me to ask a question or to practice Hebrew. I feel very friendly with many Pardes students, and very much enjoy my regular Pardes havruta at night seder. Even though we come from very different places, we have the same curiosity and respect for Jewish texts.”
