Fostering understanding through education and inter-religious cooperation since 1993, the Sister Rose Thering Fund began as a supporting wing of the Department of Religion at Seton Hall University.
Our mission is to advance Sister Rose’s legacy by fostering understanding and cooperation among Jews, Christians and people of other religious traditions through advocacy and education. Sister Rose Thering served as administrator, recruiting educators and raising funds to defray tuition costs, until her retirement in 2005.
Coffee with Alex Kor - March 9
The Sister Rose Thering Fund was asked to participate in a webinar hosted by Greenleaf Center on March 9th. Executive Director, Anthony C. Sciglitano, Jr. kicked off the event by sharing the mission and scholarships offered through the fund. It was a great opportunity for both programs. Dr. Alex Kor's mother was an extraordinary woman. A perfect way to celebrate Women's Month.
