My Dear Children
A screening of the film My Dear Children followed by Q&A with co-director LeeAnn Dance. The film follows one woman’s quest to unravel a family mystery. It’s a journey that reveals a heartbreaking and little known humanitarian tragedy. One hundred years ago, Jews in what today is Ukraine, Moldova, and Belarus suffered through what scholars now call “the holocaust of its day.” Pogroms that swept the region from 1917-1921 killed some 300,000 Jews. It’s a story shared by Jews the world over.

A Forgotten Heroine: The Remarkable Letter and Life of Rachel Mordecai
Meet Rachel Mordecai, a young Jewish teacher from North Carolina who in 1815 took a stand against anti-Semitism through a daring letter of complaint to a famous novelist –- a letter which produced results. Hailed as a heroine by a generation of young Jews, she later stunned many by converting to Christianity. We will explore the life and times of this complex and strong-willed Jewish woman, touching on minority representation in media, assimilation and what it really means to be a Jewish heroine.
