Seton Hall University’s Sister Rose Thering Fund’s annual fundraiser, “Evening of Roses,” is virtual this year. It is set for June 1 at 7 p.m., and 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 honorees are the Curt C. and Else Silberman Foundation, which works to assure that the roots of prejudice and the Holocaust, and the lessons it teaches today, are understood to serve for the betterment of society. It is led by Silberman Foundation trustees Edward and the late Evi Meinhardt, who died on March 27; and philanthropist Gene Hoffman.
Rabbi Abraham Skorka, Ph.D., the co-author of “On Heaven and Earth” with Pope Francis, is the keynote speaker. To register, go to SHU.edu/eveningofroses1.
