Kesher Parent Organization

The Hebrew word Kesher means connection.  Our Kesher organization, or Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), does a great deal to help our Pardes community by connecting parents, teachers, administration, and staff.  We provide support for the entire school, whether it is sending a meal home to a family, working on a Tikkun Olam project, making something for Staff Appreciation Week, and everything in between.

Volunteering is a critical part of the Pardes experience, and a great way to develop new connections, have fun and show your kids what community involvement looks like – any level of participation is welcome and deeply appreciated!  Please pick one or more committees that interest you and sign up using the link provided.

If you are interested in being considered for a Committee Chair position, please let us know by email us at

We ask every Pardes parent to volunteer, even if only one or two hours each month. This will be deeply meaningful to our efforts and is essential to reach our goal of fortifying a close-knit community with a deep home-to-school connection.

Thank you in advance for your support of our many programs in store this year!
