Jewish group offers free loans to LA stores hit by looting

The Jewish Free Loan Association, an LA-based organization founded in 1904, has announced that it is offering interest-free loans of up to $18,000 to all residents of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties affected by looting and rioting that has taken place alongside protests responding to the police killing of George Floyd.

“Looting loss loans available immediately,” reads the subject line of an email sent to subscribers, which explains that the funds could pay for “debris cleanup, graffiti removal, construction needs, inventory replacement and more.”

Much of the looting around LA happened in the city’s Fairfax district, historically home to a large Jewish community and many Jewish businesses — including the famed Canter’s deli.
