Our Mission

We offer interest-free loan assistance to people in need with the goal of helping them to lead more rewarding and responsible lives.

Our Mission

Jewish Free Loan offers interest-free loans on a non-sectarian basis to individuals and families whose needs are urgent and who may not qualify through normal financial channels. Interest-free loans, instead of charity, fill an important gap in our social system by promoting self-sufficiency with dignity.

Jewish Free Loan affirms the ancient biblical mandate, interest-free lending, by enacting it: We offer interest-free loan assistance to people in need with the goal of helping them to lead more rewarding and responsible lives.
