About HFLA

The Hebrew Free Loan Association of Miami (HFLA) is a program of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation. Since 1989, HFLA has been offering interest-free loans to Jewish individuals and families who may not qualify for normal loan resources. HFLA has provided 600 interest-free loans during the past three decades totaling more than $2 million.

HFLA’s interest-free loans, as opposed to charity, fill an important gap in our social system by promoting self-sufficiency with discretion. Every loan disbursed by HFLA is a community investment in the dignity and independence of borrowers. Clients’ commitment to timely repayment schedules have helped HFLA maintain a reimbursement rate of more than 98 percent. As soon as monthly loan payments are deposited, HFLA approves and disburses new loans. Clients understand the process and are dedicated to timely repayment schedules as they are quite literally paying it forward to the next person in need.

OUR MISSION

The Torah mandates us to give to those less fortunate. HFLA’s mission is based on the Mitzvah of Tzedakah; one is actually required to lend money to a fellow Jew when he is in need, because this is the highest level of giving. In other words, the generous act of giving Tzedakah enables us to help while fulfilling a number of Torah Commandments.
