Brunch Honoring Fran Kritz and Steve Rabinowitz


The Hebrew Free Loan Association of Greater Washington makes a significant impact on the DC Jewish Community by providing interest-free loans to those in need of financial help. These loans are repaid and the funds are recycled. Currently, there are nearly three dozen loans and with your help, we aim to double the number of community members receiving HFLAGW support.

Fran will be receiving the Outstanding Service Award for her eight years of dedication to HFLAGW as a board member and past president. Under her leadership, the organization continued to modernize and began fundraising to grow its reach.

Steve Rabinowitz will be awarded the Community Leadership Award. Steve has been a pillar in DC and continues to advance HFLAGW in our community.
