She began her ministry in 1939 at St. Edwards, Racine. Other places in Wisconsin where she served were St. Aloysius, Sauk City; St. Augustine, Wausaukee; St. Mary, Belgium; and Holy Name and Dominican College, Racine.

     Sister Rose Thering (August 9, 1920 in Plain, Wisconsin – May 6, 2006 in Racine, Wisconsin) was a Roman Catholic Dominican nun, activist against antisemitism, educator and a professor of Catholic-Jewish dialogue at Seton Hall University.[1]

Rose Elizabeth Thering was born in Plain, Wisconsin, the sixth of 11 children in a German-American farm family that prayed together daily. She entered St. Catherine Siena Convent of the Racine Dominican Sisters in Racine, Wisconsin at age 16. She earned a bachelor's from the Dominican College in Racine in 1953, a master's from the College of St. Thomas in St. Paul in 1957 and a doctorate at St. Louis University four years later.

After taking her orders she did her doctorate dissertation at the Jesuit-run Saint Louis University. Her subject was the treatment of Jews in Catholic textbooks. Her findings were shocking. In the film she recalls how she "almost got ill" reading these texts that were being used across the country to educate school children.[2]

A dissertation for her 1961 doctorate at St. Louis University that propounded the evidence: textbooks and preachings that abounded in calumnies against Jews and Judaism. Her work was published later in an anthology, “Faith and Prejudice” (by The Paulist Press).

In 1962, when Pope John XXIII convened the ecumenical council known as the Second Vatican Council, Augustin Cardinal Bea used Dr. Thering's study to draft portions of the 1965 Vatican document “Nostra Aetate” (“In Our Age”), which declared of Christ's death that “what happened in his passion cannot be charged against all the Jews, without distinction, then alive, nor against the Jews of today,” and, as for teaching, added, “The Jews should not be presented as rejected or accursed by God.”

As Dr. Thering recalled later, “They were 15 lines in Latin, but they changed everything.”

In 1974, Dr. Thering presented a menorah to Pope Paul VI at the Vatican. In 1986, she went to Austria to protest the inauguration of President Kurt Waldheim, the former U.N. secretary-general, who had served in a Nazi army unit implicated in the deportation of Jews from Greece during World War II. In 1987, she went to the Soviet Union to protest the government's treatment of Russian Jews.

Following her teaching career she was named Emerita Professor at Seton Hall University. As a member of a commission appointed by Gov. Thomas Kean, she helped write a 1994 law mandating the teaching of the Holocaust and genocide in all elementary and high schools in New Jersey. At Seton Hall, where she joined the faculty in 1968, she established workshops on Judaism for church leaders and teachers, and led student groups on 54 tours of Israel.[3]

Late in life Dr. Thering remained an active and vigorous opponent of anti-Semitism.[4]

A film about her activism Sister Rose's Passion (directed by Oren Jacoby) was made in 2004. It was nominated for an Academy Award.

She died, aged 85, from kidney failure in 2006 in Racine, Wisconsin.

In her honor, Alan Brill was appointed as the Ross/Cooperman Endowed Professor in honor of Sister Rose Thering in the dept. of Jewish- Christian Studies.

Frederick Paul Thering

M, b. 6 September 1928, d. 21 November 2010
Father*Joseph Leo Thering b. 28 Jan 1893, d. 17 Nov 1936
Mother*Rose V. Ederer b. 2 Mar 1895, d. 6 Jan 1982
Name TypeDateDescription
Name VariationFrederick Paul Thering was also known as Fred.
  • Frederick Paul Thering was born on 6 September 1928 at Wisconsin.
  • He was the son of Joseph Leo Thering and Rose V. Ederer.
  • Frederick Paul Thering married Maxine Harrington on 14 April 1951.
  • Frederick Paul Thering died on 21 November 2010 at age 82 Fred Thering, our beloved Dad, Grandpa, Great-Grandpa and Friend built his stairway to heaven and shook the hand of his Lord and Savior on Sunday, Nov. 21, 2010. Fred died peacefully at home surrounded by his loving children after a valiant, courageous fight against esophageal cancer.

    Fred began his life on Sept. 6, 1928, on a farm in Wyoming Valley, Wis. Fred was one of 12 children, that grew up with a strong faith in the Lord. Fred's father passed away when Fred was 8 years old. Fred was taught by his mother at a very young age that there is, "No such thing that can't be done." Fred portrayed this in everything he did. There was never a job that he couldn't tackle nor a person that Fred wouldn't try to help! Fred was warmly known as "Freddy-1-Call Does it All" and he sure could! Anyone that Fred met was forever touched by his kindness and warmth.

    Fred graduated from St. Nazianz High School and then enlisted in the Army, where he was stationed at Fort Campbell, Ky., with the 11th Airborne Division. Fred married the love of his life, Maxine Harrington on April 14, 1951. They returned from Kentucky and made their home in Plain, Spring Green and settled in Madison in 1959, where he has since resided. Fred was a master of all trades; he started his career as a plumber and because Fred loved to build things, he started a lifelong career in the construction business. He could never officially retire and after his "retirement" from Badger Expediting, he became the custodian for St. Peter's Catholic Church, where he faithfully worked up until his death. He thought of St. Peter's as his second family and loved every moment spent there.

    Fred was a charter member of St. Peter's and sang in the choir for more than 40 years. Fred loved working and helping others, but would never pass up a good day of fishing, playing cards, bowling, and watching sports of any kind, especially the Packers and Badgers. After his wife passed away, Fred took over her talents for baking - Fred was known for his apple pies, dinner rolls and Tuna Puffs! Fred's greatest joy was spending time with his family and sharing his great sense of humor with them!

    Fred is survived by his loving children, Debra Pappas of Spring Green, Gloria (Mark) Brown of Sun Prairie, David (Janice) Thering of Madison, and Nancy (Ron) Mohr of Sun Prairie; nine grandchildren, Jeremy (Jenny) Pappas, Lisa (Rod) Pastorius, Corey Thering, Jason (Justine) Myers, Travis (Alexis) Thering, Stefanie (Craig) Niesen, Alyson and Nick Mohr, Brandon Thering, Catrina Mohr and Elliott Gilbertson-Brown; and nine great-grandchildren, Jacelynn, Kasey, Kenna, Treyson, Tiana, Grace, Ethan, Carter and Riley. He is also survived by his sisters, Florence, Roseann and Joann; and a brother, Leo.

    He was preceded in death by his wife, Maxine in January 2004; his parents, Joseph and Rose; brothers, Harlan, Louis, Joseph and Alphonse; and sisters, Grace, Dorothy and Sister Josalia.

    A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 24, 2010, at ST. PETER'S CATHOLIC CHURCH, 5001 N. Sherman Ave., Madison with Monsignor Charles Schluter and Father Roger Nilles officiating. Visitation will be held from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 23, 2010, at the RYAN FUNERAL HOME, 2418 N. Sherman Ave., where the Knight's of Columbus will recite the Rosary at 7 p.m. Visitation will also be held from 10 a.m. until the time of Mass at the church on Wednesday. Burial will be held at Highland Memory Gardens Cemetery.

    In lieu of flowers, donations in Fred's honor should be made to St. Peter's Catholic Church or HospiceCare Inc., Madison.

    The family wishes to thank the staff of St. Peter's and HospiceCare for making his final days so peaceful.
