Filled with unforgettable characters, irresistible hits, and stunning set pieces, Norman Jewison's adaptation of the hit Broadway musical won three Academy Awards (including one for then-unknown conductor John Williams), two Golden Globes (Best Picture and Best Actor), and a million hearts.
Set in a Ukrainian village in 1905, Fiddler on the Roof follows Tevye the milkman (Topol, reviving his legendary London stage role) as he musically deals with poverty, the prejudice of non-Jews, and the romantic entanglements of his five daughters.
Live performance before the film by Orkestyr Farfeleh. Performing on accordion, clarinet, trombone, guitarron and vocals, this delightful klezmer ensemble will delight you with their irrepressible performance -- which may even include a few songs from a certain classic musical. Sample their sounds here.
Asian take-out provided by Leah's Gourmet Kosher Foods.
Kosher certification supervised by The Va'ad HaRabnim.
