Israel GAP Experience loans are not being made at this time.

Many of today’s educators agree that a gap year after high school and before college enhances academic success. Through a gap year spent in Israel, Jewish students often mature and strengthen their bond to their community. Jewish Free Loan supports the gap year experience by offering loans up to $5,000 to make an impression for life on our young adults.

At Jewish Free Loan, we rely on guarantors instead of collateral to secure your loan. A guarantor is someone who can guarantee to pay back the loan if you do not. A guarantor is at least 25 years old, lives in California and has a credit score of 680 or better. A friend, family member, or employer are examples of a guarantor.
