An AMAZING Pardes Day!!

This song was written and performed by Sam Rotenberg, a fellow student and friend, at Pardes! We were having a party in Gemera (Talmud) to celebrate finishing a long, complex, and difficult section. Sam wrote this song in honor of “the end”. The Gemera we’re learning is about Lost Objects, so in the song you’ll hear about losing and finding things.  Obviously, if you have studied this before it’s more entertaining, but it’s still awesome that something so Rabbinic, can become so beautiful. Enjoy!

The second AMAZING thing to happen today was the start of recruitment for Pardes!! Evan and Kalie (another two incredible students, friends, and classmates) did an intro skit to get everyone (the student body and faculty) excited about recruitment. The skit was hilarious, thoughtful, wonderful!

Everyday at Pardes is better and better! Studying at Pardes was by far one of the best choices I have made in my life!
