On March 2nd, 2019, Network JCFR, Jewish Family Services and JELF held a joint Happy Hour to connect young professional Jewish Richmonders about these great services and teach them more about what JELF offers their community. Development Director Josh Schaier explained how the interest-free loans work and more.
JELF provides interest-free last dollars loans for higher education to Jewish students in need, including college, graduate school, and degree-granting vocational programs of study.
JELF was happy to have both Jodi (Mandel) Hirschfield, JELF assistant development director and former Richmonder, and Josh Schaier, development director, representing JELF at the Happy Hour.
Thank you to everyone who attended.
Note: the next deadline to apply for a JELF student loan is April 30. For more information about JELF or to apply, visit jelf.org
