ROOTED IN DEEP TRADITION
Our work of providing no interest loans to the Greater North Texas Jewish community is rooted in the Jewish tradition of Gemilut Chasadim, the giving of loving kindness, which sees helping people establish a financially secure future as the highest form of charity. Our zero interest loans not only provide hope and peace-of-mind through the relief of immediate financial strains, but give borrowers an opportunity to meet their challenges with dignity.
GIFTS THAT CONTINUE GIVING
Interest-free loans are funded entirely through donations which continually recycle to others through loan repayments, creating many times the original value of the gift and supporting members of the Greater North Texas Jewish community in perpetuity.
