Free loans available for Jewish federal employees, contractors

The federal government shutdown is impacting thousands of our friends and neighbors. Uncertainty over the length of the furlough is causing additional anxiety and stress for those who are not getting paid during this time.
Jewish Free Loan of Greater Portland offers interest-free, emergency bridge loans to help Jewish federal employees and contractors in Oregon cover their living expenses during the shutdown. Loan amounts and repayment terms are flexible, depending on the need. More information and a link to the application are available here.
Please help us spread the word! In recognition of the urgency of the situation, we will turn these loans around as quickly as possible — within a few days, if necessary. For more information, contact Ben at 503-892-7417 or
