Be a Big Pal to a Jewish Child in need

What can you do to help? Be a Big Pal to a Jewish Child in need! Be a friend, mentor, and a role model. We all need someone we can trust and confide in. Someone that is there just for us.

Having a Big Pal means that for a few hours a month, he or she experiences a different perspective and has someone to talk through various thoughts and ideas. There is someone else to call or e-mail when inevitable questions arise. The longer a match lasts, the more likely that it will help a child develop new ideas, habits and opportunities that can have a long-term impact on their future.
