Her story is one of international drama and suspense. Driven by a selfless concern for others, in 1973 she and her husband established a network to assist members of the Jewish community in Syria to obtain the right to travel outside their country. After his death a year later, she remained at the forefront of this movement and was known to those who sought her aid as simply "Mrs. Judy." Years of persistence and compassion resulted in more than four thousand people being able to leave the country. Today, she continues to work with human rights groups concerned with the plight of refugees.
