my Local JELF JELF partners locally

JELF's model has always been to partner with Jewish agencies and social workers to help administer loans at the local level.  In all of our communities, we work with LJAs (Local JELF Administrators) who interview each applicant - and help guide you through the process!

From application to aid

The individuals below are JELF's Local Administrators.  Their contact information will be provided to you by JELF after application submission. If you don't see your community, JELF will contact you to schedule your interview directly or please feel free to inquire.
