Rabbi David Pardo
Rabbi Pardo is rabbi and educator with 10 years of experience creating engaging educational experiences in informal settings, ranging from teen work to young professional education, numerous shana b'aretz institutions to college campus.
He is currently the Director of the Jewish Learning Initiative on Campus (OU-JLIC) at Brandeis University, where he creates educational opportunities and social programming catering to over 1600 Jewish students on campus at Brandeis and leads a congregation of almost 300 engaged young adults as rav, posek, counselor, and spiritual guide.
His varied experiences around the Jewish world have inspired a deep commitment to professionalism and organizational excellence. He hopes to bring the best of business practices to blossom in the Jewish world.
He has smikha from Yeshiva University, a BA in Economics from UCLA, and has nearly completed an MBA in Social Entrepreneurship and Impact Management at Brandeis. He's worked and lived in such far flung places such as LA, San Diego, NYC, Long Island, Jerusalem, Alon Shvut, the Old City, Canada, and now Boston.
When not teaching or meeting with students, he loves biking, drinking some fine tea with his wife, sampling hot sauce by himself (no, he doesn't have a problem), as well as helping his daughters into their sweeping collection of princess dresses.
