History Biographical
The Hebrew Free Loan Association was established in 1911. Its aim is to provide interest-free loans to the needy of Montreal's Jewish community. All moneys are raised through donations, bequests, legacies and membership dues - there is no outside funding. It has helped over 80,000 people and was put to use especially during the Depression, when it enabled many Jews to survive and attain self-sufficiency. Any member of the Jewish community, whether a member of HFLA or not, is eligible for loans.
