TEMPLE BETH EMETH v’OHR PROGRESSIVE SHAARI ZEDEK
INVITES YOU TO A SABBATH MORNING BRUNCH & LECTURE
Tevye’s Daughters: No Laughing Matter
Unlike most discussions of Fiddler on the Roof, this presentation will turn the spotlight on women—the female characters in Sholem Aleichem’s Tevye stories and the women in Solomon Rabinowitz’s personal life.
Solomon Rabinowitz loved women—especially his wife Olga and their many daughters—and Huttner contends it was this love that enabled the writer known as “Sholem Aleichem” to create all the memorable female characters we know today.

Brunch 10:00 am – Lecture 10:30 am (Shabbat Services to follow at 11:15 am)
