We are proud that Pardes’s efforts to build a new facility in Jerusalem continue to move forward despite the challenges of the current moment. While most of us remain confined to our homes, a new home for our Torah, for our students and alumni, and for the vision of Jewish life we are promoting is coming to fruition, one day at a time.
In this vein, we are excited to share Home is where the Torah is, the podcast recorded in our homes, and sent directly to yours. In this series, you will hear from six of our incredible teachers as they consider the various components that make up the concept of home and what makes a true home from a Jewish perspective. Rabbi Leon Morris will also have the opportunity to engage in conversation with the gifted architect of our new building Matti Rosenshine, as we think about the ways in which our new building will become our new collective home.
