Jewish leader receives Polish Knight’s Cross award

by admin

Stanlee Stahl, executive vice president of the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous, said the honor is also for the many Polish heroes who saved Jews during the Holocaust.


Polish President Andrzej Duda last week awarded the Knight’s Cross of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland to Stanlee Stahl, executive vice president of the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous.

The award, which recognizes foreigners for their contributions to Poland, was presented during a ceremony in New York.

“In practicing the Jewish commitment to hakarat hatov, demonstrating thanks, we have been able to support more than 1,000 righteous gentiles living in Poland, sending over $37 million to these heroes over the past 31 years,” said Stahl.

“The righteous are true Polish heroes and this award not only recognizes my work, and that of the JFR, but more importantly recognizes their courage and legacy,” she added.

The Jewish Foundation for the Righteous provides financial assistance to 100 aged and needy righteous gentiles in 11 countries, according to its website. It has given $44 million to righteous gentiles, who once numbered several thousand, according to the site.
