The Learnathon for Haiti was last night, and it was a rousing success.  Some of Pardes’ best teachers taught amazing shiurim looking at many of the most challenging issues surrounding social justice and tzedakah, particularly in regards to imperatives for giving tzedakah to non-Jews and how we balance our finite resources.

The Beit Midrash is usually filled with students on Wednesday evenings for Night Seder, but last night, the learning was all for the sake of raising money for Haiti – a beautiful sight.

Donations will be accepted until the end of next week – to support Haiti via Pardes, go here.
