Yiddish Film: Tevya (1939)
November 5 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Maurice Schwartz’s adaptation of the Sholem Aleichem play centers on Khave, Tevye the Dairyman’s daughter, who falls in love with Fedye, the son of a Ukrainian peasant. Her courtship and marriage pit Tevye’s love for his daughter against his deep-seated faith and loyalty to tradition. This was the first Non-English Language Film to have been deemed “culturally significant” by the United States Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. In Yiddish with English subtitles.
