  1. WONDERFUL.. he was the guy who wrapped me up in everything Jewish. I was very young watching this movie and just fell in love with the character. And his wife..
    Oh my, how the tears fell when he asked his wife, do you love me…
    I loved how he spoke to G-d.. Reasoning with Him and asking if He could chose someone else
