Pen pal

Rabbi Elchanan Lewis

20 Sivan 5767
Question
Hi I am 12 and live in Jerusalem is it o.k for me to be in email contact like a pen pal with a girl in New York whom i’d see maybe once a year?
Answer
I don't think it is a prohibition yet I think it will be more appropriate to have a boy pen pal. You should ask your parents for their view on this matter as well as your teachers. All the best.
