Coalition for Mutual Respect Interfaith Seder

Every other year the Driscoll Professorship in Jewish-Catholic Studies co-sponsors an interfaith Seder in an effort to educate people of different ethnic backgrounds and religions about the Jewish tradition. The Seder takes place in Spellman Lounge and usually involves about 200 people from a variety of religions. (On the off year, The College of New Rochelle sponsors the Seder.)

The New Rochelle Coalition for Mutual Respect was founded in 1979. Original co-founder Rabbi Amiel Wohl, Rabbi Emeritus at Temple Israel of New Rochelle, remains as the director.

The mission of the Coalition is to improve human relations and further the quality of life in New Rochelle and Westchester County.

Iona's Driscoll Professorship in Jewish-Catholic Studies is proud to be a partner in the work of the Coalition for Mutual Respect.
