Drew Saddened to Announce Passing of Dr. Shirley Sugerman Rosenberg G’70.

Founder, Shirley Sugerman Interfaith Forum and Drew Caspersen School of Graduate Studies Alumna

“It is with great sadness that I am writing to share the news that Dr. Shirley Sugerman Rosenberg G’70, passed away on Monday, November 23. She was 101.

“Shirley was a graduate of the Caspersen School of Graduate Studies, trustee emerita, and founder of the Shirley Sugerman Interfaith Forum, which brought speakers such as Nicholas Kristof (see photo below), Eboo Patel, Susannah Heschel, and many more to Drew.

“In 2016, the Drew Center on Religion, Culture and Conflict honored Sugerman with the Honorary Peacebuilder Award for her dedication to peacebuilding and for her work to end conflict and build bridges between peoples.  It is truly remarkable that Shirley had the vision to create such a forum 30 years ago.”    –  Jonathan Golden, CRCC Director.
