Sister Rose’s Passion
Hosted By: Sousa Mendes Foundation
A celebration of the extraordinary life and work of Sister Rose Thering and her successful quest to rid Catholic School education of anti-Semitism. Rose was a young nun in the Dominican order, determined to stop the Catholic Church from teaching hate, and prove that the doctrine blaming Jews for the death of Jesus was irreconcilable with her notion of a loving God. Rose’s efforts paved the way for the historic Vatican II Council and the papal encyclical that reformed the Church’s teachings about Jews. She later became a renowned Holocaust educator and received the Courage to Care award from the Anti-Defamation League.
