HFLA Provides Interest-Free Loans to Those in Need
As we welcome Shabbat, this week’s Torah portion Mishpatim teaches that lending money without interest to those in need is the purest form of aid in Judaism. The Hebrew Free Loan Association of Miami (HFLA), a Federation program, embodies the lessons of Mishpatim — the Jewish value that giving a loan is an even greater mitzvah than giving charity. HFLA offers a financial helping hand for situations such as medical expenses, car and housing repairs, fertility treatments, adoption costs, education expenses and more.
