The highest form of charity

The Rambam (Maimonides) wrote that to help someone get out of poverty was the highest level of charity possible. So it was fitting that Professor Eliezer David Jaffa collected the Knesset Speaker’s Prize last week (awarded last year) for his Israel Free Loan Association. The IFLA has provided $130,000,000 to help 40,000 impoverished Israelis overcome financial difficulties and even saved lives. 99% of the loans were repaid in full, proving that the Rambam was right!
