Film: Sister Rose’s Passion and Discussion
Wednesday, January 8, 10:30am–noon
2004 l 39 min l Documentary, Short
Presented by Jordyn Barry, Director of Jewish Innovation, Pozez JCC
In today’s time of rising anti-Semitism it is important to learn about the pioneers who spoke up on behalf of the Jewish people and changed the way the world viewed Jewish-Christian Relations.
Join us for a film screening of the Academy Award Nominated Best Documentary Sister Rose’s Passion and a conversation with Jordyn Barry who will expand on her unlikely personal friendship with Sister Rose. This documentary tells the inspirational story of a most unlikely activist who made the battle against anti-Semitism her life’s work. Sister Rose Thering, a gutsy Dominican nun, had the courage, toughness, and passion to resist the status quo and push for what she believed was right which had a direct bearing on the historic Vatican II Council that reformed the Catholic Church’s position on Jews and Judaism. Her spirit of resistance shines throughout this documentary as she continues her energetic crusade amidst a swirl of controversy.
