Kosher credit unions
« on: November 07, 2023, 12:10:03 AM »
Does anyone know of any CUs which don't have a ribis issue?


What are the parameters which could make a CU allowed for opening a regular checking account? (I've seen some משמעות that there are some CUs that are permissible...)

Is that when they lend out money?
Only on DDF does 24/6 mean 24/5/half/half

Or when you lend them (opening checking account) and you receive benefits. (not *you*)

Here's an example of one which would seem like it would be ok (from a ribis POV anyways; only want to know from a Ch"M aspect).
