Guest Post: Chef David Berman

Posted on December 27, 2011 by Chef David

If you aren’t familiar with Pardes Chef David Berman, you should come meet him – he’s really wonderful. At the very least, you should read Leah Stern’s post about him… it’ll give you a “taste” of the man’s personality. Anyway, Chef Berman attended our recent community trip to Hebron, and he typed up a ‘guest Continue Reading »

Week 16: “Emotional Education”

Posted on December 24, 2011 by Derek Kwait

(X-posted from my home blog, Yinzer in Yerushalayim) Nearly all of Pardes went to Hevron in the West Bank Sunday. It spent the rest of the week needing therapy. I think I faired better than most, however, because I went into it knowing what to expect and I got it in spades: It is by Continue Reading »

Posted on October 31, 2010 by Tamara Frankel

Dear Friends, It’s that time of the week again! Hopefully the coming week will be filled with lots of optimism, more rain (we need it here!), productivity, smiles and love for all of us!!

Two weeks ago, my grandfather passed away.  He had been ill for a long time, and it was not a sudden death, but it has been nonetheless a difficult experience.  At his funeral, my uncle shared a story about my grandfather that has become something of a mantra for me in the last few weeks: Continue Reading »
