The Jewish Foundation for the Righteous will present its prestigious Recognition of Goodness Award to Carole and Barry Kaye of Boca Raton at its annual dinner Tuesday at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York.

At the dinner, attendees will also pay tribute to Giedrute Ramanauskiene, a Lithuanian rescuer, and Lea Ingel-Port of Tamarac, Fla., the survivor she and her family saved during the Holocaust. They were reunited for the first time in 61 years at JFK Airport on Friday. The JFR organized her rescuers’ trip to New York.

More than 600 business, civic and religious leaders are expected to honor the Kayes and to welcome the visitors from the Holocaust era.

“The JFR is proud to honor Carole and Barry, who exemplify the spirit of civic responsibility that the Recognition of Goodness Award embodies,” said JFR Executive Vice President Stanlee Stahl. “Barry’s extensive charitable work has placed his business among the top community leaders that epitomize civic responsibility.”
