In conjunction with An American Odyssey: The Jewish Experience in Greenwich, the Historical Society will present Dear Mom and Dad, a dramatic reading to honor the young men and women who served their country and honor those brave Americans of Jewish heritage. Herb Rosencrans was the first born son of Jewish immigrants who came through Ellis Island as small children. Their first born American would go on to serve his country with great distinction. Herb’s younger brother, Bob, lent Catherine Herb’s letters home to his dear parents. Herb’s letters were turned into a dramatic play which chronicles the sacrifice of one Jewish family. The performance will be dedicated to Bob Rosencrans who, like his older brother, served his country during WWII.

A discussion with the audience will follow the performance.
