HFLA-SA Joins Effort to Provide $3.4 Million Interest Free Loan for Humanitarian Needs in Israel!

We’re proud to be contributing to an effort spearheaded by International Association of Jewish Free Loans (IAJFL), which is providing a $3.4M interest-free loan to Ogen, our sister agency in Israel. IAJFL and 17 member agencies are joining together to provide emergency financial assistance to Israeli individuals and families.

Ogen has launched its Swords of Iron Emergency Relief Fund in response to widespread economic turmoil in Israel following the October 7 terrorist attacks and ongoing war against Hamas. Ogen is offering interest-free loans to assist tens of thousands of Israelis who have been displaced from their homes or who are facing other economic challenges caused by the war.

We’re honored to stand in solidarity with Ogen, helping to provide this meaningful support in a time of extraordinary need.

“In ordinary times, our lending is restricted to local needs, but this is no ordinary time. Thousands of Israelis need financial support to cope with the war’s economic impact. Partnering with Ogen is a natural way for IAJFL member agencies to help by providing immediate funds and showing Israelis that we care. When the loans are repaid, these funds will be recycled to help us meet needs in America.” –Rabbi David Rosenn, President & CEO, Hebrew Free Loan Society (New York)
