Jewish or “Hebrew” Free Loan Associations have been in the business of providing interest-free loans to individuals across North America for over a century. There is a recognition that sometimes life throws a wrench in one’s plans, and that the support of one’s community can make the difference in how that challenge is met.
The Jewish Federation of Greater Portland is excited to embark on a 21st century iteration of free loan for the Greater Portland community—Jewish Free Loan of Greater Portland.
Supporting one another through “life’s ups and downs,” we ensure the strength and vitality of our community now and into the future.
