“My JELF loan is giving me the opportunity to study education.  Knowing the Jewish community is supporting my education and helping me accomplish my dream of going to college is very comforting.  Thank you for believing in me.  It is a wonderful feeling that the Jewish community is behind me and is helping me accomplish my goal of becoming a future educator.”

When I was adopted in 6th grade, the Jewish community welcomed me with open arms.  With the continued support of the Jewish community and the JELF loan, I was able to choose the perfect college for me and not worry about how to pay for school.  This has helped me make a dream come true by attending college.”
