Fiddler on

Today's Spotlight:

"Everyone of us is a fiddler on the roof, trying to scratch out a simple tune." So says, Tevye the milkman, Fiddler on the Roof's main protagonist. Perhaps that's why the show, which premiered on Broadway on this date in 1964, resonates with so many people, Jews and non-Jews alike. The conflicts Tevye faces as his daughters break with the traditions of family and faith are universal struggles. As Tevye also said in the show, "Without our traditions, our lives would be as shaky as a fiddler on the roof!"

Quote: "To life, to life, l'chaim! L'chaim, l'chaim, to life! A gift we seldom are wise enough, ever to prize enough; drink l'chaim, to life! " — Tevye, singing "To Life!" by Sheldon Harnick
