Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies

Program Description

The Pardes Year/Semester Program offers you the opportunity to delve deeply into Jewish ideas, texts and personal questions - empowering you to make Judaism your own. You'll come away with skills, knowledge and inspiration under your belt, a lifelong community of passionate peers and mentors, and the life-changing experience of living and learning in vibrant, fascinating Jerusalem.

 

Open to university graduates and attracting a diverse cohort, the Year/Semester Program combines classic Jewish text study with the exploration of ethical, spiritual, philosophical, legal and societal issues facing the Jewish people today. Students leave Pardes with refined critical thinking, improved communication and interpersonal skills, and more nuanced and sensitive perspectives on Judaism, Israel and their own role in the world.

 

Students participate in seminar-style classes and havruta (partner study), and create a tailored program to reflect their interests.
