Schoke Jewish Family Service of Fairfield County has established a Hebrew Free Loan program, designed to offer community members the opportunity to receive interest-free loans to support financial needs that do not qualify for funding through our emergency assistance program.

Community members can receive funding to support immediate, concrete needs including:

  • Emergency home repairs
  • Emergency car repairs
  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral costs
  • Camp tuition
  • Participation in a gap-year or short-term Jewish or Israel education program
  • Tuition for a vocational or technical program to advance their career

To participate in the program, applicants will need to provide financial information, secure a guarantor, submit a statement of need, and commit to a repayment schedule. The length of repayment will be determined by the loan amount, with the assumption that most loans will be repaid within 36 months.

For more information about the Hebrew Free Loan program contact Jonathan Fass at 203-921-4161 or by e-mail at
