(ורדון) is a communal village
in south-central Israel
north of Kiryat Gat
and south of Kiryat Malakhi
. It belongs to the Yoav Regional Council
It was founded in 1960 as a youth center and became a communal village in 1998. It is found at the central intersection between three large moshavim: Menuha, Nahala and Sgula.
The name of the community is a loose translation for the family of Julius Rosenfeld who was a Jewish donor from the United States. ("Vardon" is derived from vered, which means "rose", hence Rosenfeld. A similar motive can be found in the name for Kfar Etzion and Gush Etzion.)
As of 2007, Vardon has 69 families, who are about 280 residents. The population is diverse, with both secular and religious Jews, both native-born and immigrants from abroad.
Vardon, being a small community, has no schools, so it relies on schools of the Yoav Regional Council and the surrounding communities. The residents may go to either secular or religious schools. The elementary schools are "Sdot Yoav" in kibbutz Gat
and "Yad Hazon" in Be'er Tuvia
. High schools are "Tzafit" in Kfar Menahem
and "Gruss" in Kiryat Gat
In Vardon there is a youth center, a sports field, public gardens, playgrounds, and a regional infirmary.
