Huge thanks to my schvesters in Park Slope Hadassah for the opportunity to present my latest program on Fiddler on the Roof:
FROM GOLD TO DIAMOND
Moving Beyond Our Father’s Fiddler
The audience was feisty and fully present, and my schvesters gave me several new things to think about as I continue my research on Fiddler on the Roof.
As the title suggests, I am now looking beyond the 50th “Golden” Anniversary (on 9/22/14) to the 75th “Diamond” Anniversary in 2039.
Do I really believe people will still be going to performances of Fiddler on the Roof in 2039? Yes I do! Furthermore, I also believe people will still be going to performances of Fiddler on the Roof when it celebrates its Broadway Centennial in 2164 🙂
Todah Rabah / Sheynem Dank / Special Thanks to Janet Young — President of Haddasah’s Brooklyn Region — for bringing the projector, setting it up, and doing the flips while I spoke from the podium.
Additional appreciation goes to Park Slope Chapter President Ethel Gold, and to my Temple Beth Emeth schvesters — Barbara Katz, Elaine Sarfadi & Hazel Tishcoff — for their continued encouragement and support. And need I say that the pickles at Essen Deli are beyond compare?!?
Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Chicago anymore…
