Shadchan (Hebrew: שַׁדְּכָן, plural shadchanim or shadchonim שַׁדְּכֳנִם) is a Hebrew word for matchmaker.

Judaism has found that a good match or couple is most likely to be people with the same, or very similar, backgrounds. Therefore, a matchmaker is most likely to be someone who is familiar with both sides and is in a position to introduce the interested parties to each other. Many Shadchonim carry out Shidduchim as a profession.
