On Monday, December 1, 2014, the JFR honored Iris and Saul Katz with the Foundation’s Recognition of Goodness award. The JFR also reunited Helena Weglowska Szachniewicz, a Righteous Gentile from Poland, with Mira Gutfilen, the the Jewish woman she saved. The last time they saw each other was in 1945, almost 70 years ago. The dinner was held at the Waldorf Astoria.
Iris and Saul Katz have been supporters of the JFR for more than twenty years. Iris is a valued board member and chairs the JFR’s Development Committee. Over the years, Iris and Saul have worked to further the mission of the JFR. They have provided financial assistance to our rescuer support program and have expanded the JFR’s education program. We are pleased that we are able to honor Mr. and Mrs. Katz and thank them for their commitment to Tikun Olam – repairing the world.
