Testimonials

  • I am honored to give to Jewish Free Loan as a volunteer, board member, legacy society member and donor.  As a board member, I have seen first-hand the wonderful work that takes place at JFL when staff, volunteers and community come together to offer assistance to people in need, with the goal of helping them lead more rewarding lives.  Everyone’s lives become richer and stronger when we weave our values and traditions together. Contributing to the growth of Jewish Free Loan brings joy and deepens my appreciation of Judaism and the importance of our community.   - Laura Drachler, JFL Board Member    
  • This loan will give me a second chance and the ability to take care of my family.  Tonight I will we will have electricity, water, gas, and a car to be able to get to work.  I am so grateful and can’t say thank you enough.

  • I am a single father of three children. I was in a very difficult and unexpected financial situation. This loan and organization helped me more than I can express.
