About
Pardess was founded in 2014, with the vision of creating a vibrant Jewish community in Southern Dutchess County, where people of all backgrounds and affiliations can learn and grow in a non- judgmental environment.

In July 2019 Pardess Chabad Farm was born, the farm will enrich all our existing programs with authentic, hands-on experiences in a most serene setting.

We offer numerous options for Jewish learning and observance on every level, including adult education, youth programs, hospital, and prison visitations as well as a plethora of social and religious services. Get in touch!
