Interest-free loans up to $3,000
Get help with urgent needs such as food, shelter, or medical expenses. We process these emergency loans as quickly as possible to help you deal with life’s emergencies — turnaround can be within a day or two, if necessary.
We may be able to help you with an emergency loan to pay rent due to avoid eviction, repair a car you need to get to work, buy a plane ticket to visit a sick relative, or address other immediate needs.
If you’re unsure what loan type to apply for, select the one that seems like the best fit. A loan officer will work with you to figure out what type of loan will be most helpful.
Hebrew Free Loan’s Model
Hebrew Free Loan is based on principles found in the Torah, in which we are commanded not to derive personal benefit — i.e. not to charge interest — when we lend money to assist those in need. Click here to watch a short video about Parashat Mishpatim, the Torah section that contains these teachings.
We’ve proven the success of our model with a repayment rate of over 99.5%. That’s the beauty of interest-free lending. As loans are repaid, funds are recycled to make new loans. Many loan recipients also participate in our Full Circle Club, in which former borrowers pay forward the help they received by donating to Hebrew Free Loan to help the next person in need.
