Who isn’t thinking about money?

In a survey to discover the biggest challenge facing Orthodox Jews – 97% of respondents answered ‘finances’.

The costs of a frum lifestyle are staggering. For a 6-kid family living a ‘normal’ lifestyle – parents need to earn over 200k a year – the top 3-4% income bracket in North America. It’s not surprising that the most popular Jewish podcast – with over 6 million listens to date – is Kosher Money.

We’re here to help build financially healthier individuals, families, and communities.

There is so much financial knowledge out there that could help. Living Smarter Jewish, a project of the OU, offers a range of programs and services that are available – at no cost – to everyone. Because if you’re feeling the crunch, you’re not alone. And even if you’re pulling through OK, there’s no better time than now to secure your future.
