We make the match. You make the conversation.

Home: Welcome


The Global Jewish Pen Pal Program matches Jews from around the world as pen pals in order to help people learn more about Jewish life in other countries. The goal of the Global Jewish Pen Pal Program is to remedy the lack of connections between Jews from all over the world, specifically between Jews in different parts of the diaspora. Pen pals can choose to communicate through handwritten letters, or virtually via emails, video calls, or messaging. All ages are welcome and there is no cost to participate in the program. Pen pals will be matched with someone of a similar age, from a different country. We supplement the experience that people have communicating with their pen pals, through hosting a variety of online events for the Global Jewish Pen Pal Program participants.
