Who we are

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 is pleased to offer a Speakers Bureau dedicated to Holocaust-related subjects. Participants include leading Holocaust scholars, survivors, rescuers, and JFR staff members. Speakers are available for community organizations, interfaith groups, synagogues, churches, and schools sponsoring programs on the Holocaust.

Organizations that engage one of our speakers will be expected to pay a $250 administrative fee to The Jewish Foundation for the Righteous, to pay the honorarium set by the speaker, and to cover his or her travel expenses. Subsidies may be available for certain speakers. The JFR will coordinate scheduling.

Please call Stanlee Stahl at 1.212.727.9955 for more information, request a speaker through our website, or download our speaker request form.
