Jewish Prisoner Services International
had its origins as an agency of B’nai B’rith International. It currently functions as an outreach program of Congregation Shaarei Teshuvah. Its purpose is to provide spiritual and advocacy services for Jewish prisoners, and assistance to their families, releasees, probationers, et cetera. We work in partnership with various major Jewish organizations and social service agencies throughout the United States, Canada, Israel and elsewhere around the globe. JPSI’s directors and volunteers come from all branches of Judaism. They include rabbis, lay leaders, educators, businessmen, attorneys, judges and other professionals. In addition, ex-offenders who have been recipients of our services frequently join us to help those who are currently dealing with the justice and corrections system.
JPSI is a pluralist Jewish organization that honors the standards of all mainstream branches of Judaism.
