Fiddler on the Roof (Full Movie)

Chaim Topol as Tevye, and Norma Crane as his wife, Golde.

Chaim Topol as Tevye, and Norma Crane as his wife, Golde.

In case you’re having one of those lazy Sundays with no plans at all — it beats a lot of other things you could be watching.

Also, if you haven’t seen it but were ashamed to admit it — here’s your chance to catch up.

And, of course, it’s also a dynamite movie.

Music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, book by Joseph Stein, set in 1905, Czarist Russia, based on Tevye and his Daughters (or Tevye the Milkman and Other Tales) by Sholem Aleichem.

The story revolves around Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his family and religious traditions while outside influences encroach on their lives. He is coping with his three, strong-willed daughters, who each pick a husband that’s further away from the faith, and with the Czarist repression.

The original Broadway production opened in 1964, and had more than 3,000 performances. It has since had four Broadway revivals, and this very successful 1971 film adaptation.

Chaim Topol plays Tevye, Norma Crane plays his wife Golde.

    I own a copy, but it is too painful to watch. if you want something with Topol, watch Winds of War, or War and Remembrance. Those are some nail biters.

Meet the surfing and mountain-biking rabbi who helps individuals reach their ‘Possible You.’ Rabbi Yom Tov Glazer serves up a combination of extreme sports, beautiful music, knowledge of Chassidut and Kabbalah, and a love of the Jewish people. He joins Yishai in-studio to speak about his unique spiritual journey, and shares secrets of living with the harmony of body and soul.

Then, on this week’s Spiritual Cafe with Rabbi Mike Feuer, how can Jews handle anger and teach gratitude? Listen in to find out!


Yishai rages against the bloodshed in Tel Aviv and the enraging statements made by EU High Representative Federina Mogherini who called for international pressure on Israel to create a Palestinian terror state. Will this ‘cycle of violence’ ever end? Then, the students of Thrive are in-studio with Yishai! Find out why these young people are excited about Israel, despite the anti-Zionist narratives they have been bombarded by on campus.

Yishai kicks off by playing the latest rant by Pat Condell that pokes fun at the weakness of the west. Then, Lazer Cohen says there is no problem finding work in Israel, rather, it’s all a problem of perception. Finally, in Israel they call him ‘Captain America’: Staff Sgt. Brian Mast is a true hero.

Over the years, Argentine Prosecutor Alberto Nisman made some powerful enemies from Iran to his own country’s president. He was set to testify this morning on a cover-up connected to Iran’s Buenos Aires Jewish Center bombing that reached the highest levels of his own government. Nisman’s body was found, shot dead, in his home.

This is hands down the best election commercial I’ve seen so far. Netanyahu is a kindergarten school teacher with an unruly class made up of his former coalition partners. Of course, you can always look at it as saying that Netanyahu is unable to control the class, and it’s his fault. Either way, its definitely […]

The average Paris Jew is afraid to have a Mezuzah on a public door, sparking discussions about Israel absorbing France’s half-a-million Jews. And where might Israel find houses for all of French Jewry amidst a national housing crisis? Housing Minister Uri Ariel believes they are going to move to Judea and Samaria!

Then in a Jewish Press Radio exclusive, ‘The Crisis of Zionism’ author Peter Beinart joins Yishai to discuss how to be a critic of Israeli policy, while still remaining a proud Jew. Beinart debates Yishai on the Palestinian narrative of victimhood, and argues that Israeli policies in the West Bank represent ‘a recipe for disaster.’ Listen in!

Is the Jewish Claim to Jerusalem Legitimate? When VICE NEWS interviewed Yishai about the future of Jerusalem, they gave him a fair shake, but it still felt wrong – why? Zeev Orenstein, Middle East analyst, explains the media’s subtle work of delegitimizing the Jewish claims to foundational things like Jerusalem and Jewish history. Then, Dr. Arieh Tepper joins Yishai in-studio where he discusses the healthy return to the Jewish Arab that was suppressed by the advent of Zionism and plays amazing Sefardi music to bring us back to it.

Yishai rants on the the French reaction to terror in Paris. Yishai argues that if you import Jihadists, you are likely going to get Jihad. Should French Jews immigrate to Israel out of fear over ideology? Why not, that’s what moved millions of other Jews back to the Holy Land.

Then, what are the secrets of sacred sexuality? 3,000 years of Jewish sexual wisdom can help navigate the confused landscape of modern relationships. Rabbi Gedalia Peterseil is a teacher, author, and a marriage and sexuality counselor. Listen in!

An Israeli female soldier (because they’re better at removing babies from their homes) evacuates a baby from a settlement in Judea and Samaria some time in the recent past. I’m thinking, if the baby was angry enough, couldn’t he evacuate in return, right there in her arms? Imagine the same picture, except with a settler […]
