We Need You!

From doctors to teachers to civil guards, Israel needs all the help it can get.


The famous musical, "Fiddler on the Roof," which celebrates life and Jewish family tradition during turbulent times, is coming to town, and what better time than now? Originally written by Shalom Aleichem and turned into a film by Joseph Stein and Norman Jewison in 1971, "Fiddler" has withstood the test of time. What happened in the Jewish ghetto of Anatevka, Russia, in 1904 is representative historically of the persecution Jews have faced, from the Nazis in World War II to the ascending tension in the Middle East between the Israelis and Palestinians today. The play is a celebration of togetherness and perseverance; fighting for Jewish pride and keeping the faith even when there is little left to believe in and no one else to turn to.
