With Madi Jackson – This Radio Program tells the Story’s of the Pen-Pals and much more – As the Coronavirus pandemic strikes not just our homes, but the whole world, we could all use some cheering up and human connection right now. We can use this shared experience and time as an opportunity to connect more with the global Jewish community and learn what it means to be Jewish in different parts of the world. That is why I’ve started the Global Jewish Pen Pal Program.

If you are interested in being matched with a Jewish Pen Pal in another country, fill out this form! Who doesn’t love mail? I will do my best to match you when a match becomes available. I will make matches via email. Once a match has been made, the fun begins! You can write handwritten letters back and forth, or, for a quicker method, you can email or send Facebook messages. The connection can be through the post or virtual. Whatever you like. I make the match. You make the conversation.
