- Pardes refers to approaches to biblical exegesis in rabbinic Judaism.
- Pardes is the subject of a Jewish aggadah about four rabbis of the Mishnaic period who visited the Orchard: Four men entered pardes — Ben Azzai, Ben Zoma, Acher, and Akiba. Ben Azzai looked and died; Ben Zoma looked and went mad; Acher destroyed the plants; Akiba entered in peace and departed in peace. The Tosafot, medieval commentaries on the Talmud, say that the four sages "did not go up literally, but it appeared to them as if they went up.
