“There are eight levels of charity…. The highest is when you strengthen a man’s hand until he need no longer be dependent upon others.”  Maimonides

The Hebrew Burial & Free Loan Association is one of the oldest self-supporting Jewish Organizations in the state of Connecticut. We are a unique organization as we are the result of a merger of two organizations. The Hebrew free loan and the Hebrew free burial. This has allowed us to assist more Jews in need.

A gap in the community is filled with the ability we have to perform the mitzvah of having a place for those of Jewish belief to have a burial in a proper Jewish cemetery. Predominately our cemetery is reserved for those that do not have the means to; or for other reasons would not be able to be buried in other Jewish cemeteries. By providing a plot and often times a proper marker.

This is at no cost to the deceased or the family. The costs are covered by those that have become members, or those that have donated to the organization. Nobody in the organization receives any payment to serve on the board or as officers. Everyone donates their time and efforts to help.

We also offer interest-free loans to assist those that may not have the means through ordinary sources. Some of the types of loans we have provided include loans to pay medical bills, pay off credit cards, emergency loans, and a variety of other types.
