Fiddler on the Roof is, of course, based upon the short stories of the great Yiddish author Sholom Aleichem. Together, we will review and discuss many of the lesser-known short stories that went into the character development of Tevye, the most famous Jewish milkman.

Through Sholom Aleichem's portrayal of Tevye and his world, we will explore Jewish customs and themes, as well as more universal ones. While we will encounter scenes which are recognizable from the play and the film, most of our time with Tevye will focus on other moments and philosophy which were part of the life of this unforgettable character.
