Heroine of the Day

Abe Foxman pens an obituary in the Jewish Week for a woman, Sister Rose Thering, who is truly deserving of the title "heroine". Thering, a Catholic nun, who passed away this week at age 85, spent her life working to fight anti-Semitism. She changed deeply held anti-Jewish beliefs in the Catholic church, and was instrumental in the passing of Nostra Aetate. She was a staunch supporter of Israel, as well as an outspoken advocate for Holocaust education. Read the JW piece here.
