The Mordecai M. Kaplan Center for Jewish Peoplehood

Mordecai M. Kaplan (1881-1983) was one of the most influential Jewish thinkers of the 20th century. We believe that his thought may be even more important in the 21st century.

Sod Level

In the traditional mnemonic PaRDeSSod refers to the secret level, in which texts are infused with a deep wisdom and sophisticated understanding that will elude many. In the context of our Kaplanian educational resources, examples of Sod resources are those that bring Kaplanian ideas into an ongoing dialogue with contemporary developments in Jewish life (experiential learning, family education, civic engagement).
