Top female scholars to host third annual lecture

The Sister Rose Thering Fund will be hosting its third annual Robbin Wilf Lecture on Sunday, March 23rd at 2 pm. The event will held in the Jubilee auditorium where a discussion will be led on Jewish-Christian relations.

Sister Mary Boys and Blu Greenberg are two of the “top women scholars in the country,” said Laurie Pine, director of media relations.

“Each brings her own experience, insight and understanding to the timely topic of interfaith relations,” Deborah Lerner Duane, Chairman of the Sister Rose Thering Fund said, “and we look forward to both an inspiring presentation and lively give-and-take following the formal portion of the program.”

Sister Mary Boys was the 2005 recipient of the Sternberg Award from the International Council of Christian and Jews.

Her most recent book is “Redeeming Our Sacred Story: The Death of Jesus and Relations Between Jews and Christians,” which was published last year.

Blu Greenberg, who is the co-founder of the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance, is dedicated to building bridges between women of various faiths.

Ms. Greenberg and her husband, Rabbi Irving (Yitz) Greenberg will be honored on May 4 as founders of the Sister Rose Thering Fund.
