Tevye in the Promised Land, Chapter Twenty-One: Reunion

Cover of Tevye in the Promised Land by Tzvi Fishman.

Ruchel hugged him with happiness. “Oh Nachman, I love you,” she said. “But what about you? What about your teaching position?”

“Wherever we go there will be a need for teachers of Torah. Rishon LeZion will have no trouble finding someone to take my place, whereas there is a special mitzvah to look after orphans.”

“Are you sure?” Ruchel asked.

“Yes, I’m sure.”

Tevye looked on in suspense.

“What’s all the whispering?” he asked.

“We have decided to leave Rishon and come with you,” Nachman answered. “Right now, the children need their grandfather more than anyone else in the world.”

A wide smile filled Tevye’s face.

“Do you hear that children?” he said. “We are all going back to Zichron Yaacov together!”

The children cheered. They jumped happily all over their grandfather. Goliath beamed at the wonderful news. He loved Nachman like a brother, and the thought that everyone would be together gave him such a feeling of joy, he felt that he could lift up the wagon with everyone in it.

“Everyone hopped in the wagon,” Tevye called.

Happily, they all climbed aboard. With a tug on the reins, Tevye turned back once again toward the house, this time to load Ruchel’s and Nachman’s belongings onto the wagon for the trip back to Zichron Yaacov.

    Tzvi
    I recently read this book. It made me laugh and cry. Every page spoke to me in some way. I am now working on a book review to present at the next Shabbat gathering of a group of women in the neighborhood. It will be hard to compress into one hour all the funny and poignant moments from the book that I want to share with them. I hope that anyone reading this blog will take the time to read the whole book — it is a wonderful read!

    I have now also added most of your other books to my "book wish list".

    Our daughter and her family will be making aliyah this summer, G-d willing, and my husband and I hope to follow them after they are settled. On the rare occasions when I have doubts or concerns, I read your blogs, and they are very reassuring.

    Please keep on writing, and I'll keep reading!

    Judy Goldman

All attendees left with fervent wishes for a swift and lasting peace in Israel.

How can awareness evolve from exploding stars?

Is God apologizing for taking away my Father? Is God telling me that He is sorry?
