About HFLA Houston
The Hebrew Free Loan Association of Houston was formed in 1932, a time of financial turmoil for both the country and the Houston Jewish community. HFLA was created to fulfill the Biblical commandment to lend to the poor and needy as found in Devarim (Deuteronomy):
If there be among you a poor man, …thou shalt not harden thy heart, nor shut thy hand from thy poor brother: but thou shalt open they hand wide to him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he lacks.
