Parity violation in p-wave neutron resonances of the palladium isotopes 104, 105, 106, and 108 has been measured by transmission of a longitudinally polarized neutron beam through a natural palladium target. The measurements were performed at the pulsed spallation neutron source of Los Alamos Neutron Science Center. The rms weak interaction matrix elements and the corresponding spreading widths were determined for 104 Pd, 105 Pd, and 106 Pd
