Maimonides writes that giving an interest-free loan is like giving someone a fishing rod instead of just the fish. It’s the ultimate form of charity because it empowers the recipient to be self-sufficient and not rely on others for help.
That’s why many Jewish communities, including ours, have set up interest-free loan funds to help people who are facing financial difficulties. We’ve teamed up with JifLA to provide this service to our community.

The Unity Torah is a special project in which a group of people collectively write a Torah scroll by purchasing a letter or part of a letter. It is an opportunity for anyone, regardless of age or background, to participate in the preservation of Jewish tradition and to connect with their faith community. By purchasing a letter, one can contribute to the completion of the Torah scroll, which will be used in synagogues and educational institutions for religious services and study.
It is also a symbolic act of unity, as each letter purchased represents a contribution to the greater whole. Furthermore, owning a letter in the Unity Torah can serve as a lasting reminder of one’s connection to the Jewish tradition and faith. When an individual subscribes to the Unity Torah project, they will receive a certificate that acknowledges their participation and includes their name and the letter they have sponsored. This certificate can be kept as a treasured memento for years to come. Overall, the Unity Torah project provides a unique opportunity for people to participate in the preservation of Jewish tradition, connect with their faith community, and create a meaningful legacy for themselves and their loved ones.

The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, is known for his leadership of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement and his dedication to spreading Jewish education and outreach around the world. He assumed the position of leader in 1951, a year after the passing of his father-in-law, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneerson. He oversaw the expansion of Chabad-Lubavitch into a worldwide movement with emissaries in over 100 countries, emphasized the importance of Jewish education, and encouraged the creation of schools and other educational institutions. He also emphasized outreach and engagement with individuals outside of the Jewish community, oversaw the creation of a wide range of educational and social programs, and was known for his deep knowledge of Jewish teachings and his emphasis on personal growth and ethical behavior.
A: Mitzvah is a Hebrew word that is commonly translated as “commandment,” “obligation,” or “good deed.” In Jewish tradition, mitzvah refers to a commandment or duty that is prescribed by God, and that is incumbent upon Jews to follow as part of their religious and ethical obligations. There are 613 mitzvot (plural of mitzvah) in the Torah, the first five books of the Jewish Bible, which cover a wide range of topics including prayer, ritual practice, ethical behavior, and social justice. The performance of mitzvot is seen as a way of connecting with God and fulfilling one’s purpose in life. In modern Jewish practice, mitzvot are viewed as a way of living a meaningful and purposeful life, and are seen as a way of bringing holiness into everyday actions and interactions.
