The Jewish Foundation for the Righteous provides financial support to more than 600 non-Jews who rescued Jews during the Holocaust and preserves their legacy through a national education program.
The JFR's Board of Trustees has been instrumental in the success of the Foundation. Under the leadership of Harvey Schulweis, JFR Chairman, and before him E. Robert Goodkind, the Board has become an active national group of business, civic, and lay leaders. Their energy and dedication make it possible for the Foundation to provide aid to so many and to educate future generations.
