The Center for Jewish Civilization invites you to join us for a film screening, along with co-producer, co-director, and writer, Leann Dance. My Dear Children follows one woman's quest to unravel a family mystery. It is a journey that reveals a heartbreaking and little known humanitarian tragedy.  One hundred years ago, Jews in what is today 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 250,000 Jews, perhaps many more. Using a letter describing those horrific events, Judy Favish, a 61-year-old South African Jew traces the tragedy that tore apart not only her family, but also tens of thousands of others. It is a story shared by Jews the world over. Leann Dance is an award winning television producer and groundbreaking investigative reporter who began her career more than 25 years ago. She has worked as a freelancer in East Africa and as a producer with CNN's investigative and documentary unit. She now has her own boutique production company outside Washington, D.C. "My Dear Children" is her first independent documentary production. Light refreshments will be served prior to the event. RSVP is encouraged. Any person with an accommodation request is welcome to email us at We will try to meet these accommodation requests to the best of our ability.
