Sister Gemma Del Duca Honored as 'Righteous Among the Neighbors'
Sister Gemma Del Duca, co-founder of the National Catholic Center for Holocaust Education (NCCHE) at Seton Hill, was one of 24 Pittsburghers recently named Righteous Among the Neighbors for her role in standing up against anti-semitism.
Righteous Among the Neighbors is a joint project of the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh and the LIGHT Education Initiative, in partnership with student journalists at Mt. Lebanon High School, to honor non-Jewish Pittsburghers who have supported the Jewish community and stood up against antisemitism, particularly in response to the October 27th, 2018 attack on three Pittsburgh-area Jewish congregations.

The NCCHE's work in Catholic-Jewish relations was also highlighted in an interview with Director Dr. James Paharik on WTAE Listens.
