Sister Rose TheringMarking its 21st year, the Sister Rose Thering Fund for Education in Jewish-Christian Studies will recognize and honor 30 of its Founders, friends and colleagues of the late Sister Rose Thering Thering, O.P., Ph.D. on Sunday, May 4 at 3 p.m. in the Jubilee Hall Atrium located on the 4th floor.

The Fund offers tuition assistance to teachers, K-12, in schools throughout the state. During its 21 years, more than 160 teachers have taken advantage of this program, learning about interfaith dialogue, the Holocaust and other genocides, and taking this information back to their students. At least 30 teacher/scholars have gone on to earn a Master's Degree in Jewish-Christian Studies. In the past, outstanding individuals and scholars have received a Doctor of Humane Letters, honoris causa, or Humanitarian of the Year awards. However, this year the Board of Trustees determined to honor those individuals who had the foresight to create an endowment to provide on-going assistance for teachers who enroll in courses in the graduate program in Jewish-Christian Studies. These individuals paved the way to continue the legacy of Sister Rose Thering by fostering understanding and cooperation among Jews, Christians and people of other religious traditions through advocacy and education.
