Judy Feld Carr
Gibert Studio, Toronto
Over a 28 year period, Judy Feld Carr secretly brought to freedom 3,228 Jews prohibited from emigrating from Syria. Working with smugglers, bribing government officials, she removed most of that community from veritable bondage. In addition, she clandestinely smuggled out of that country, priceless ancient articles of Jewish worship. Until the late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, and the Israeli Intelligence Organizations, publicly acclaimed her activities, the world, including the Jewish world, had no inkling of this Canadian Jewish woman's covert life. She is the subject of a best selling Canadian book by historian, Dr. Harold Troper, "The Rescuer" now in its second edition. The rescue was the best- kept secret in the Jewish world.
Judy Feld Carr was born in Montreal, raised in Sudbury, a small Northern Ontario town, the daughter of a fur trader. She received a Bachelor of Music Education degree, and Master's degrees in Musicology and Music Education from the University of Toronto. She taught both university and high school, and was a visiting lecturer at Yeshiva University, Hebrew University and Youngstown State University in Ohio. She received an honorary Doctor of Laws from Laurentian University in Ontario, and a Doctorate of Humane Letters from the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York. In June, 2012, Judy was one of the first six recipients of The Presidential Award of Distinction, of the State of Israel. The Award was created by President Shimon Peres, to "recognize outstanding contribution to the Jewish People and the Stateof Israel'.

Hearing of the hell that is going on in Syria today substantiates everything that I had done for 28 years because I so closely watched the hell that was going on there before.
