The Lux Center for Catholic-Jewish Studies will sponsor the Sister Rose Thering Award Dinner on May 19 at 6 p.m. at the Boerner Botanical Gardens. The Sister Rose Thering Award is given to individuals who demonstrate a lifelong dedication to furthering interreligious relations.
The award is a tribute to Sister Rose Thering, a Roman Catholic nun from Racine. Throughout her lifetime, Thering worked to educate new generations about the evils of the Holocaust and to rid Catholic textbooks of anti-Jewish sentiments.
Rabbi Ronald Shapiro and Rev. David Cooper will be honored at the award dinner. To attend or pay tribute to the honorees, visit the Lux Center website at Shsst.edu/Lux-Events.
