Getting a handle on my debts is a great burden off my shoulder. I couldn't have found a better organization to help me with this. They acted as if I was doing them a favor, the favor of helping people! They allowed me to keep my dignity even while going through all the details of the loan.
Keep up the great work!
I needed money for home repairs. I can't believe how quick and easy it was to finance through Hebrew Free Loans. Everyone was so personable and friendly, this is an amazing organization!
I really wanted to go back to school but knew that I would need assistance to make it happen. After going into debt with undergraduate loans, I decided to seek a certification program instead of an entire degree program. Even though it was less expensive, I wasn't able to cover the cost myself. The Hebrew Free Loan made it possible for me to complete my Nonprofit Management Certification at my university of choice! I use the skills I gained every day at my company, and I have zero financial stress upon completion! Thank you, HFL for supporting my professional and financial goals!
When I first found out about Hebrew Free Loan from a friend who'd received support for her graduate studies, I thought it was too good to be true. Then, once I began the loan application process for myself to help me consolidate debt accumulated as I have been growing my own business, my thought was this is a dream come true! The spirit of community care is alive and thriving here and the opportunity to receive generous support that doesn't come with the usual price tags like high interest and an attitude of shame and stigma, is truly a blessing. Every interaction was infused with kindness and respect and the process was ultimately fairly simple and straightforward. I am SO grateful for Hebrew Free Loan and have been so thankful I could share this resource with others in my life who also have needed financial help.
I'd happily give 18 stars if I could! I'm grateful beyond words for the various times that Hebrew Free Loan has supported me in such a practical way: first in adoption, second in debt consolidation, and just now, as a first-time-home buyer! I still can't believe it's *not* too good to be true that HFLA offers this rare and beautiful service, and does so in a way that is incredibly respectful, supportive, and downright easy. Judith was so clear, compassionate and encouraging in the (very brief) process, and the Exec. Director, Cindy, is wonderful, too. The entire process from application to funding was exactly one month, and could have been even faster, if I were ready.
This is such a wonderful organization!!!
I can't say enough about them! I won't go into all the details about why I needed a loan, but suffice it to say, it was important. I was so pleased to see that they truly regarded the situation as important as I did. They were thoughtful and kind and acted fast.
These are folks who really care. And they are such professionals too. Five stars? These guys deserve ten!
Hebrew Free Loan warmed my heart from the moment a friend told me about them which continued through my perusing of their website & all communications with my loan officer. They are professional, generous & big-hearted and I am forever grateful for their service to the jewish community!
My name is Ryma Sukhorukova. I asked HFL for help in June 2020, when I already felt like a fish with no water. I lost both my parents 10 and 8 years ago, and I am only 33!!! As a young woman, with no other siblings, it was so hard to survive. I had to pay for 2 funerals, I was owed money to some people for medicine for my parents at that time, and of course I had to support myself on paying rent, bills and etc... To survive, I had to use credit cards, with huge APRs on it, and I didn’t know, for how long it will continue to be like this. I couldn’t save even a $1 for my future. Maybe my case wasn’t the worst one but HFL took the action on me. I got fortunate to work with a beautiful person Judith Markowitz. She hold my case very professional and on the other hand, very personal. I will never forget, what HFL and Judith did for me. I can breathe again and save a little bit of money (no more APR), and just feel happiness, and it’s been only a few months. That is amazing, how this support changed my life.
Thank you so much again and forever. Please continue to help other people, to give them hope and bring smiles on their faces.
A friend told me about the Hebrew Free Loan during the covid shut downs. I called and spoke with a very kind friendly woman named Judith Markowitz. I felt comfortable and cared for and it seemed as if we had been friends. I never felt intimidated or judged. She was so helpful in going over everything and assisting me. I wound up with a loan that helped me immensely so that I could more easily deal with the challenges at hand. This helped me maintain until I could re open some of my business. Judith and the other members were compassionate and caring....it was very clear from the beginning that they are here to help. So much appreciated during this era when kindness is so very important.
Big Gratitude for that along with the financial assistance. Sofanya
Hebrew free loan staff is first of all
kind, professional,well organized, and efficient.
We appreciate their help and mostly the way they are handling their costumers.
The whole process was very smooth. The staff was especially helpful, taking the time to answer all of my questions and even help me make a realistic budget! Would definitely recommend!
My older brother, who received interest-free loans from Hebrew Free Loan during each of his four years in a clinical psychology graduate program, told me about this wonderful nonprofit. I applied, immediately heard back, had a fun, helpful, and informative video interview with Judith, and am now fortunate enough to have received my own interest-free loan to help me fund my own graduate studies. The whole process was quick, enjoyable, and enormously helpful to me, as it will markedly decrease the amount of student loan debt that I will be graduating with. I am so grateful!
Hebrew Free Loan has helped both me and my husband achieve our dreams multiple years in a row! We have been granted funds that have allowed us to both go back to school to obtain our Master's Degrees, as well as a COVID relief fund to help us get and stay on our feet during a time when we have been unable to continue our work in our community. Hebrew Free Loan has been a literal life saver, and the staff at Hebrew Free Loan San Francisco has been nothing but kind, supportive, and understanding throughout our loan journeys. We are so grateful for their compassion and willingness to help us through this stage of our lives. This has been by far the best loan experience either of us have had, and we would recommend them to our family and friends (and we have!) with zero hesitation!
My husband and I are first time home buyers and we took out a loan with the Hebrew Free Loan of San Francisco, which helped us with the purchase of new furniture for our house.
I had a great pleasure working with Marina Levy at Hebrew Free Loan. She was super professional, made the process very smooth and quick. She helped answer all my questions and provided the loan quickly. My mom also got assistance from them in the past and also had a flawless experience. Hebrew Free Loan of San Francisco is an amazing organization and I would recommend this organization for financial assistance to anyone in need.
I am so beyond grateful! I was struggling due to multiple factors that hit all at once. I turned to the Hebrew Free Loan and filled out an application - when I was confused I was able to call and my question where answered with kindness and clarity. In the process, another challenge came up and I almost gave up, but the organization followed up and encouraged me through to complete the process. I couldn't believe I received so much support and help. It was so timely and quick! The hebrew free loan gave me hope and sense of relief. Mentally I am already refocused on creating and building instead of struggling and surviving. I feel confident that I can make things happen again and pay everything back soon. I wish more organizations where like this. Lifesaver - literally.
In the mist of this ever changing world, HFL of San Francisco made this process quick, easy, and at the same time still very personable. They have allowed me to put myself in a better financial situation in order to pursue a doctorate while still working full-time. A huge thank you to Judith and her team! I will continue to recommend them. You’re in great company and a supportive community!
Amazing immediate impact organization! the staff is super professional and kind. I was fortunate to receive a grad school loan help with tuition. So thankful and can't recommend the organization enough!
Hebrew Free Loan has helped me finance my doctoral degree in clinical psychology. Their staff are incredibly kind, helping me to think through how to integrate this loan with my overall financial plan. The online application is very user friendly as well!
I had a great experience with Hebrew Free Loan of SF! I applied for an undergraduate loan for my first year of college, and the application and interview process was very smooth. Can't thank these guys enough :)
I'm so proud to be connected to Hebrew Free Loan! After securing a business loan for my design agency, I was able to focus on growth and securing new clients. I received guidance throughout the loan process from their incredible team. Hebrew Free Loan has served the Bay Area for more than 120 years and continues to help so many business owners and individuals on a daily basis. I couldn't be more grateful for their support.
College is hard and expensive. HFL really helps me go through my undergraduate education. People at Hebrew free loan are supper nice and helpful. I couldn’t imagine how hard it would be as a college student without HFL.
Hebrew Free Loan Association of San Francisco has been a huge help to me. I was incredibly scared of the financial side of college, and was worried how I would be able to pay the upfront fees. It is thanks to the Hebrew free loan that I am able to have peace of mind, and focus on my studies. Marina Levy of HFLA guided me through the whole process, and made me feel comfortable from the first step to the last. I am very grateful for the support of HFLA in my studies.
I was at six weeks till graduation for a MBA and I thought to myself how did I get here? I came to San Francisco with big dreams of getting my education here, my dad was retired and my mom disabled and couldn’t afford their own cost of living let alone any of their children. I was in a situation where if I was going to get a degree I had to land a option that I can be able to afford, little did I know how far I had to go to cover school and living to survive and thrive in San Francisco. Let alone it was hard for me to believe that myself, because I was the first person in my family to even get an AA. Both of my parents, and my brothers and sisters, tried to go to college, but they all ended up dropping out because they had children to support and bills to pay. I never thought I’d go on to get a bachelor’s degree, let alone an MBA.
I discovered Judaism at a local synagogue called Sha’ar Zahav. Going to Shabbat services every Friday night gave me time to meditate and think, which made me feel more in touch with humanity, and eventually I converted to Judaism.
During this time I was determined to go to an art school, so I went for as much financial aid as I could, from every possible source. During my last semester I had trouble covering all my expenses and needed to get my own apartment. That’s when I was referred to Hebrew Free Loan. Within just a few weeks I got a loan that let me pay my rent, food, and transportation costs, so I could finish my degree.
Right after graduation I had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enter an accelerated MBA program at FIDM’s Los Angeles campus. I hadn’t planned on going to graduate school right away, but this was too good an opportunity to pass up. It was expensive to move to LA and get a new apartment and a new job, but Hebrew Free Loan came through for me again with a graduate student loan. I’m not sure how I would have covered all my living expenses without the extra help I got from Hebrew Free Loan.
Completing my master’s degree is truly a wish come true – a vision that I started working toward over 5 years ago. My plan now is to build my career one step at a time, and make sure I stay open to opportunities come my way. I don’t know yet exactly what my future holds. But I want to say that my life would be very different today if it wasn’t for the support of Hebrew Free Loan. Thank you!
This past summer our newly purchased "Chabad Center for Jewish Life" suffered a fire that devastated the exterior of our facility. This was indeed a difficult time for our community and funds were immediately needed to upgrade the facility.
Jamie Hyams, Cindy Rogoway, and all the staff at Hebrew Free Loan of San Francisco we interacted with were eager and open to help our community recover, restore, and rebuild. They made the loan application process seamless and were supportive along the way.
Thank you for the invaluable service you provide to the Bar Area's Jewish community. May G-d bless you and your efforts.

At first I found out about Hebrew Free Loan Association of San Francisco about 5-6 years, when they helped my older daughter's family (new homeowners at that time) with their difficult financial situation, and we (my wife and I) were co-signers to their loan. We were very grateful to Hebrew Free Loan at that point, and last year the loan was fully re-paid.
And who knew that this year my family will need a financial help from Hebrew Free Loan Association of San Francisco. I can tell you that my experience with Hebrew Free Loan from the very beginning, when we had to fill in online application form, was great! Everything in their process was straightforward and easy. Right after we applied online, on the next day we received email with additional instructions to provide more details for our case, and it didn't take much time from us either. Then in few days, we scheduled appointment with the case worker, and it was very pleasant and informative experience for us. Our case worker Marina Levy was very knowledgeable professional person, and she really cared about us, and she did everything to make our experience with Hebrew Free Loan be really pleasant. Thanks to Hebrew Free Loan, we are now in a much better financial situation as we were few months ago!
Also this year, our younger daughter (Brandeis University freshman) applied for the Student loan at Hebrew Free Loan Association of SF, and her experience with them (different case worker Beth Blackman) was also great!
Hebrew Free Loan Association of San Francisco is the best nonprofit organization that we know! They really help people during the difficult financial situations!
and the Hebrew free loan of sf have been awesome to me and very helpful to my need. It was a very nice great fast experience working with them. They helped me out big time and I'm very grateful for that, thank you so much
We had over $20,000 in credit debts spread over 7 different credit cards and over the last five years and the balances were not moving down with interest charges. I looked online for loans to help us consolidate all our debts and had already been in a fair payment plan. I found Hebrew Free Loan online and it was the perfect solution for us!
We were able to consolidate all the cards into one loan with HFL and they were a pure joy to deal with in the whole process. They made it simple, straightforward and clear to implement. The best part is that we're no longer paying off the banks high interest every month, and now have no interest payments at all, all working to help us pay back this loan in full even faster! This has been a life-changing move for us as a family.
We could not be happier that we found H.F.L. and our family is so grateful for their real financial support to break free from credit debts.
I was truly blown away by my experience with Hebrew Free Loan. The personnel I interacted with were professional, knowledgeable, easy to talk to, compassionate and inspired about their work. I wasn't sure which loan type would work for me and got great advice on the best approach to take. Any question I had throughout the loan application process was answered promptly and clearly, and the whole process was easeful and non-intimidating. It felt like my loan officer was also my advocate ~ she was invested in my story and genuinely cared about my visions coming to fruition. When my loan was approved, we celebrated. What a gift!
Hebrew Free Loan of San Francisco is awesome! Thank you for helping me out! I received a loan for credit card consolidation. The process was painless and Staff helped answer all of my questions. All Jews of Northern California should consider partnering with Hebrew Free Loan SF as they really help out our Community!
HFL of San Francisco is beyond incredible. This is a philanthropic organization that does amazing work serving the bay area community. Not only that, everyone there is polite, generous, and welcoming. They don't just hand out money to whomever, either. They do proper due diligence for every applicant and I was no exception.
I received loans from them while I was in college that helped me get through a vital time in my life, and most recently I applied and received a business loan to start a small business that I've been dreaming of for the last few years.
There should be programs like this around the world, helping current generations and paying it forward for the future ones. Kudos and Mazel Tov! I will champion this non profit for as long as I can and to whomever.
We received several loans for HFLA which allowed us to achieve our goals and build the dental practice that became a success. Thank you HFLA for allowing us to achieve our dream.

I am a graduate student in the Bay Area getting my masters in psychology to become a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I heard about the Hebrew Free Loan from my sister, who heard about it from her partner, so I decided to do my research. I submitted my initial application and was immediately responded to not only with useful information, but also with sincerity and care. The employees of the HFL that have assisted me from the beginning, have always been extremely helpful, communicative and dependable. They reviewed my budget with me and helped me plan out how I would allot the loan over the course of my school year. I continue to feel their support, now that I have reapplied for my second loan and am deeply grateful for everything they do for the community.
Hebrew Free Loan was a game changer for our business and our lives. They provided us with a substantial business loan to expand our restaurant into a catering business. The loan preparation process was helpful, collaborative, and fair. We couldn't be more thankful for our experience working with them!
Hebrew Free Loan was a GAME CHANGER for our restaurant and catering business! We were growing but lacked cash reserves to properly expand. With their help, we were able to confidently expand our catering capacity. The process of applying for the business loan was helpful - it was collaborative and consultative and prepared us to take on our first funding.
Hebrew Free Loan was a Game Changer for my business. After our biggest customer filed for Chapter 11, we were able to regain the money from Hebrew Free Loan. As a result, we were able to pick ourselves up again and continue on.
The Hebrew Free Loan ... there just aren't words for how important and impactful this organization is. "It takes money to make money" is more than a cliche, and, in fact, if it were not for the generosity of HFLA in SF I don't know if I would have been able to get out of substantial financial hardship that was incurred due to health issues as well as student debt and generational poverty. I came to Hebrew Free Loan two times in my entrepreneurial journey. Both times they provided me with the resources I needed and played a huge role in my ability to advance my career and business. I went from struggling student, to massage therapist, to business owner with multiple locations. My business now employs 18 people and collaborates with local non-profits to provide wellness services to the homeless and women who have escaped domestic violence. We also partner with schools to provide job opportunities to single parents who are in school full time and need part-time, flexible, and rewarding work.
I mention all this because the ripple effect of HFLA is present in all this. If it were not for their wise and hard working staff, I can say without a doubt, none of this would have been possible. I am forever grateful!
Incredible organization. Straightforward process and simple repayment plan for a great INTEREST-FREE loan. I got mine to pay for graduate school but they have so many programs to help you in whatever part of life you're in. Highly recommended. Great people, great mission!
The folks at HFL treated me as if I was among the most important in its circle of the reason for its existance. The loan is a bridge between employment and is giving me the room to land in the next clearing as I make the journey. Beth Blackman was so conscientious, she works with multilevel layers of meaning about HFL. Thank you. Robin S.
I've been the grateful beneficiary of two loans from Hebrew Free Loan which I've used to further my education. Because of help from HFL, I was able to relocate to the Bay Area so that I could more easily continue my training as a Candidate in psychoanalysis. Everyone at Hebrew Free Loan has been obliging, respectful and easy to work with. Thank you!
I really needed to find funding to pay for my university fast after my financial aid fell through due to a bureaucratic policy that my school hid from me until the first day of classes. I was facing having to take a semester off of school and consequently possibly being kicked out of my internship because I couldn't afford to pay for school. Hebrew Free Loan was a life saver to me because they granted me a loan for school. I couldn't be more thankful to them, and the donors, for helping me finance such an important part of my life. The process of applying and receiving the loan was very fast, easy, and I felt genuinely cared for. Thank you Hebrew Free Loan and the people who make it possible.
I have had excellent service with the Hebrew free loan Society and so have other members of my family. As well I have helped others received support and loans. It's an excellent organization and I'm highly proud to recommend them.
I am deeply grateful for Hebrew Free Loan of San Francisco! In 2013, they gave me a loan to help me pay for my bar studies course. Thanks to them, I passed the CA bar exam on the first try and am doing what I love - practicing as a civil rights legal aid attorney representing low-income Bay Area tenants in their fight against unlawful evictions and asserting their fair housing rights. Without Hebrew Free Loan, my dreams of social justice advocacy would not have been realized!
Incredibly supportive organization that has nonjudgmentally helped me twice: once to pay for graduate school and later to consolidate my credit card debt. I am so grateful that HFLA exists.
Hebrew Free Loan has been supporting the Jewish community in the Bay Area for 120 years, without fanfare and very often, without a lot of public awareness. Through interest free loans in a variety of loan categories - from education to business to debt consolidation to fertility to lifecycle events and more, HFL SF has continued to grow and to compassionately serve an evolving community beyond its original mandate. I am proud to be a volunteer and board member for an organization which has had, and continues to have, such a positive impact on people's lives and self-sufficiency.
Hebrew free loan association SF is one of the best non profits in the city. They are the only place to get interest free loans for a variety of needs. Great organization
I wish I can give Hebrew Free Loan more stars. They literally helped us get a loan when we were in dire need of one. And didn’t know where else to turn.
Struggling with fertility issues, they went above and beyond to help us and were very supportive and sympathetic during the process. Cindy was a pleasure and even though we got and PAID OFF our loan years ago, we still keep in touch. They really care for you.
If you are Jewish, have co-signers and live in SF, don’t hesitate to give them a call. They will try to help you the best way they can.
Thank you so much to everyone at HFL!!
Fantastic non-profit that has consistently carried out its mission of helping immigrants for 120 years with no interest loans. It's mission has broadened beyond business loans to education loans, loans for ceremonies, IVF, and now helping immigrants who aren't Jewish. Kudos for changing with the times!
Hebrew Free Loan is an incredible organization on a mission to help people make their dreams come true without compromising financial health. I am so thankful to HFL for helping me finance my doctoral studies, without them I would have likely chosen to no longer pursue my PhD.
Great guidance and support for my business goals! They helped me get the loan I needed to move my business to the next level
Cindy and the members of Hebrew Free Loan were fabulous. Asking for money can feel just awful and needing money can feel so embarrassing, but they made the process so comfortable. They were very professional, very straight forward and very empathetic. I cannot thank them enough.
I became involved with Hebrew Free Loan as a skilled volunteer, and joined the Marketing Commitee. I was quickly hooked - the scale of impact this one small organization has in the community is unbelievable. The staff truly is a family to their clients, and every time I hear about another person, family, or business helped by a Hebrew Free Loan I swell with pride. It is an under-utilized and under-known resource for the community!
This organization is special. Every story I hear is one of incredible impact, helping people achieve their dreams, or survive when other avenues are impossible. Often when I tell people about it, they don't believe me because it sounds too good to be true. But it's real, and is extremely tied to the Bay Area Community.
Review from Guidestar
Hebrew Free Loan has been a game changer for me. The financial support has allowed me to grow my business. Their friendliness and helpfulness has been unprecedented - in a world of competition and playing dirty, it's so amazing to find an organization like HFLA that truly cares about people and has tools that are effective. They've been a key player in helping me integrate back into my life after returning from Israel and building my business that is geared toward health and community. I thank HFLA and would refer any one who needs a little support to be their best.
I know countless people who swear by HFL to help them get loans free of interest. They all have nothing but good things to say and I am an avid supporter of this non profit making a big impact by empowering the local community with the loans necessary to help move people forward in their lives.
I am truly grateful for Hebrew Free Loan. Without Hebrew Free Loan, I would not have been able to return to graduate school part time, as a full time working mother living in Alameda.
This loan is helping me not get over my head with interest payments and unmanageable debt.
The process is also positive, and easy. My loan officer Beth was a joy to work with. She is kind, clear, professional and timely. We are fortunate to have Hebrew Free Loan!
For several years, my wife and I have worked to reign in our expenses and eliminate unnecessary luxuries (vacations, dinners out, babysitters, items for our home). But the cost of living in the Bay Area, combined with student debt, combined with two kids, combined with medical expenses and the usual unexpected costs of life, has made our goal of living debt-free feel more-and-more elusive. Like so many others, we were caught in a cycle of slowly mounting debt without resources or help to reverse the tide.
Even though I work within the Jewish community, it frankly never occurred to me to reach out to Hebrew Free Loan for help. I was embarrassed, a bit ashamed – I’m a professional who makes a decent salary and am not on the verge of living on the streets. Debt consolidation felt like I was inviting judgment for my past errors or excesses. But, after a casual conversation with a savvy colleague about my ongoing financial stresses and limitations, I decided that I needed to act.
And what a great first step it was. Not long after reaching out to Hebrew Free Loan I started to feel hope that I could create a new plan and approach to financial stability – one that I’d not tried before. Hebrew Free Loan rightly required me to assess my expenses with realistic eyes, to budget carefully, and to get organized. After meeting with their loan officer, having entered the room somewhat sheepishly, I left feeling like I’d made a genuinely smart decision.
Not only did Hebrew Free Loan help me become more organized and disciplined, but I felt like the act of asking and receiving help from the Jewish community actually connected me to meaningful Jewish tradition. It felt like an act of Jewish solidarity, and my loan officer explained that their work – and our relationship – was indeed rooted in Jewish codes.
And, to my surprise, during the process of seeking a loan, I discovered that my parents had in fact received a Hebrew Free Loan before I was born, just when they were struggling to get onto their feet and contemplate having a family. It seems that I organically, yet inadvertently, followed in their footsteps.
So, today, I am on the path to paying off my debt, making smart financial decisions / living within my means, and no longer feeling quite so enslaved by money stress. Yes, I’ve only started the process, and I’ll never be a wealthy man, but I know I’m on my way to more peace. That means everything to my family and me.
Thank you, Hebrew Free Loan!
Absolutely fantastic organization in every way, shape, and form!
I started a business, but did not have enough capital to expand as quickly as I needed. The interest free loan that I received from Hebrew Free Loan enabled me to hop several months (and possibly years) ahead in terms of scaling my business!
Aside from the loan itself, the people working within the organization are absolutely top-notch. Everyone who I spoke with was extremely friendly, and really took the time to understand my business and my goals.
There was a good amount of money involved in my loan, so I was slightly intimidated going into the process. However, I immediately realized that any fears I had were unfounded!
The representative that I worked with gave me several application options, and made sure that we chose the one most likely to get my loan approved. They also assured me that, if my application was to be declined the first time, they would work with me to re-apply until we were all satisfied. Amazing!
I felt that asking for a loan would be difficult - I could not have been more wrong. The organization was an ally and an advocate for me to get the funding I needed, which was absolutely incredible considering they were the ones that gave the loan!
To any Jewish citizens of Northern California, I would look no further than this first-class organization for a loan to start a business, personal venture, education, etc. As soon as I am able, I will be donating to this group, and will certainly spread the word wherever I can.
Thanks again, Hebrew Free Loan!
This organization is a godsend. Not only was is the loan exactly what my video production company needs to get our production equipment for jobs, the people who work there and run it are so sweet and helpful. They treat me like a friend and an entrepreneur. They worked hard to help me get the capitol I needed. Thank you HFL!
I was an international student on a student visa ten years ago and I had no reasonable, viable options for funding/loans while finishing a Phd in Jewish studies. All U.S. dissertation grants in academic Jewish Studies funded U.S. citizens/residents exclusively (some made provisions for Eastern European students, which I was not). My only other option were bank loans with exorbitant interest rates. While the HFL did ask for additional paperwork & references because I was not a U.S. resident/citizen at the time, they were nonetheless the sole organization willing to assist me with much-needed funding while wrapping up my Jewish Studies PhD program. I am very grateful to HFL for the assistance they extended at a critical juncture.
Hebrew Free Loan Association is helping me finance my two masters degrees (MBA, MPA) with an interest free loan. As an organization, it is efficient and friendly. I loved going to their office and meeting the staff. Such nice people with a great sense of purpose.
I just entered grad school with the fear of incredibly high interest rates. Thankfully Hebrew Free Loan helped me save about $4000, which is a big chunk of dough!
I have had the most incredible experience working with Hebrew Free Loan these past few months. Their staff is compassionate, organized, and so helpful. I highly recommend this organization!
