In keeping with The Jewish Press’ long tradition of bringing our readers the finest in Torah and Jewish Literature, along with news of the Jewish world, we are happy to announce the upcoming weekly serialization of Tzvi Fishman’s award-winning novel, Tevye in the Promised Land, which will begin this coming Monday.

“The Jews of Anatevka have three days to clear out of the area.”

Thus begins Tevye’s unforgettable journey to the Promised Land. Tzvi Fishman’s stirring family saga of the continuing adventures of Sholom Aleichem’s beloved character, Tevye the Milkman, immortalized in Fiddler in the Roof, takes up where the original stories left off.

At a crossroads at the outskirts of their Anatevka village, Tevye and his daughters meet up with a troupe of Zionists headed for Palestine. Just then, as if the Almighty is pointing the way, the Anatevka mailman comes running with a letter from Tevye’s long-lost daughter, Hodel. Her communist husband, Perchik, has been exiled from Russia, and they are living in the Holy Land on a non-religious kibbutz!

Clinging to the Torah and the tradition he loves, Tevye has to defend his daughters, not only against the modern lifestyle of the Zionist pioneers, but against malaria-infested swamps, deadly plagues, swarms of locusts, Turkish prisons, and Arab marauders. With steadfast determination and faith, Tevye perseveres through non-stop trials and hardships in rebuilding the Jewish Homeland. While trying to do his best as a father in marrying off his daughters to suitable husbands, Tevye himself finds a new bride to take the place of his deeply-missed Golda. Finally, as World War One threatens to destroy the Jewish settlements in Palestine, Tevye joins the first Jewish fighting brigade since the days of Bar Kochba and Rabbi Akiva. In a daring secret mission, he helps the British rout the Turks.

Now in this sweeping, literary adventure, Sholom Aleichem’s beloved milkman, Tevya from Anatevka, is back as he journeys with his daughters to the Holy Land to become a pioneer settler in the Land of Israel. With Golda, Tzeitl, Hodel, Hava, Ruchel, Bat Sheva, Perchik, and Hevedke Galagan at his side, and characters like Rabbi Kook, the Baron Rothchilds, and Zeev Jabotinsky appearing along the way, Tevye’s trials of faith continues in this dramatic and deeply inspiring saga – a novel your whole family will never forget.

“I thought I knew everything there was to know about Tevye, but reading Tevye in the Promised Land, I kept turning page after page after page….” Haim Topel, star of the movie, “Fiddler on the Roof”

Filled with laughter, heartbreak, and joy, Tevye in the Promised Land is the compelling story of a people’s rebirth, and a triumph of Jewish Faith.

Winner of the Israel Ministry of Education Award for Creativity and Jewish Culture.

A fascinating glimpse into the rich complexity of medieval Jewish life and its contemporary relevance had intriguingly emerged.

Dear Dr. Yael:

My heart is breaking; my husband’s friend has gotten divorced. While this type of situation is always sad, here I do believe it could have been avoided.

Despite being one of the fastest-growing Jewish communities in the U.S. – the estimated Jewish population is 70-80,000 – Las Vegas has long been overlooked by much of the Torah world.

Pesach is so liberating (if you excuse the expression). It’s the only time I can eat anywhere in the house, guilt free! Matzah in bed!

Now all the pain, fear and struggle were over and they were home. Yuli was safe and free, a hero returned to his land and people.

While it would seem from his question that he is being chuzpadik and dismissive, I wonder if its possible, if just maybe, he is a struggling, confused neshama who actually wants to come back to the fold.

I agree with the letter writer that a shadchan should respectfully and graciously accept a negative response to a shidduch offer.
