Seton Hall University’s Sister Rose Thering Fund’s annual fundraiser, “Evening of Roses,” raises money for student scholarships, while honoring those who work tirelessly to advance Sister Rose’s legacy by fostering understanding and cooperation among Jews, Christians and people of other religious traditions through advocacy and education. This year’s gala is on Tuesday, May 30, at 6 p.m., at Bethany Hall, Seton Hall University.
This year’s honorees include Rabbi Noam Marans, the American Jewish Committee’s director of interreligious and intergroup relations, who will receive the Sister Rose Thering award for Outstanding Service in Education for Interreligious Harmony.
Rev. Msgr. C. Anthony Ziccardi, coordinator for undergraduate admissions and retention and assistant professor of Biblical studies, will receive the Sister Rose Thering award for outstanding service to the Sister Rose mission.
According to the late Sister Rose Thering, O.P., Ph.D., “I know the power of teachers. It is my deepest wish that teachers in our public and parochial schools, with scholarship assistance, will be able to enroll in Jewish-Christian Studies at Seton Hall University to stem the tide of ignorance in our schools and in society.”
