Judy Field Carr - Miss Judy

For thirty years, the Jews of Syria knew that in the free world was a mysterious woman, "Miss Judy" doing everything possible to rescue them.

She is the mother of six children, a music teacher from Toronto, Canada who created its own secret information network in Syria. Judy has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in ransom payments to contacts inside and outside Syria, and managed to rescue entire families. She managed to rescue more than 3,000 Jews from Syria
