I was in a semi-professional production of Fiddler on The Roof about 2 years ago in Novato, CA. The play is about a family living in Russia during the pogroms in the early 1900s. The theme of family and perseverance are what stuck with me through the whole process. Not a lot of the cast was Jewish but it was so fascinating to me to hear how the cast really embraced each other as family and enjoyed the ritual within the show. This experience made me appreciate and embrace my Judaism in a new way.
I attended the play Fiddler on the Roof that was put on at the local high school. Fiddler on the Roof is about a family that is struggling to deal with the Russian pogroms as well as dealing with a changing world around them. It is filled with violence, love, comedy, and great musical numbers.
I learned that as an American Jew we are pretty well off. Our ancestors had to deal with so many more very close threats than I have ever had to deal with myself.
I attended the play "Fiddler on the Roof" recently at the Keswick Theatre in Philadelphia. There was a father of five daughters who was trying to preserve his Jewish religion. He also had his three oldest daughters marrying for love. Each of them though pushing themselves away farther and farther from Judaism. This play taught me that marriage doesn't have to push you away from your religion.
