JELF alumni

The Full Circle Society

We LOVE when JELF alumni pay it forward. Every year, more and more former JELF recipients support current recipients. When a JELF alum makes a donation, they become part of our Full Circle Society.

Helping future generations go forward

YOUR Impact

JELF has provided over $14.5 million in interest-free loans to 2,000 Jewish students. We now have recipients living all over the world!


We want to hear your story. Someone reading about your experience with JELF could lead to them to apply or donate.

Each year we have over 200 volunteers, many of who are former recipients, who give their time to help Jewish students succeed.

Success Story

Tamir G.

“Going to college gave me my work ethic and being in charge of a research team taught me how to manage people. I owe it all to JELF. JELF was wonderful. Everything from the application on was easy and the people were so helpful. Now, I'm working toward my dream.”
