The Hebrew Free Loan Association of Greater Washington is proud to present a new mitzvah project option for B'nei Mitzvah or confirmation class students. Our mitzvah program offers each participant the opportunity to learn the history and traditions surrounding Jewish philanthropy as well as real-life financial skills to build on.
Program Description: Each participant agrees to donate a portion of their gifts, or to raise a small sum to donate to the HFLAGW, he or she will meet with members or directors of the HFLAGW to learn about the loan programs, how this type of charitable giving fits into the Jewish view of tzedakah, and learn some about basic financial literacy.
About us: Since 1909, the Hebrew Free Loan Association has been maintained by the Jewish community of Greater Washington, DC, providing interest-free loans to members of the community, to help them meet their financial needs with dignity.
