Next Generation

Make a difference!


If you’re in your 20s or 30s, interested in microfinance and philanthropy, and want to get involved with a group of like-minded, socially-conscious Jewish professionals in New York, we invite you to join the Hebrew Free Loan Society’s Next Generation Network. The Next Gen Network gets together a number of times each year for learning, events, and socializing around HFLS’s work.

The Network is led by the Next Gen Steering Committee, which is committed to supporting HFLS through events, fundraising, and volunteer work. The Steering Committee plans and coordinates programs for the Network.

Click here to see photos from past Next Gen events, from a site visit to HFLS borrowers’ businesses in Crown Heights, Brooklyn to a Purim party and fundraiser.
