2022 Evening of Roses Gala

"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." — Sister Rose Thering, O.P., Ph.D.

The Sister Rose Thering Fund's annual fundraiser 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.
