Rosemary Radford Ruether, a dear friend of Sabeel, passed away

On Saturday 21 May, a dear friend of Sabeel, Rosemary Radford Ruether, passed away. A feminist theologian, Rosemary had been sick for some time. After a visit to Palestine, she was willing to change her Zionist beliefs and lost many of her relationships in the Jewish community because of this. Rosemary spent much of her professional life at the Garrett Theological Seminary in Chicago. She also wrote ‘Faith and Fratricide,’ a book about the theological roots of antisemitism. Along with her husband Herc, Rosemary spent a semester at the Tantur Ecumenical Institute in Jerusalem
