A fiddler on the roof – meshuge, neyn? Beginning as a set of Yiddish stories by Sholem Aleichem first published in 1894, then being immortalized both in film and on stage, Tevye and his daughters have enchanted audiences young and old. We’ll take a close look at the recent Yiddish off-Broadway production of “Fidler afn Dakh,” which ran for over a year to sold-out audiences. What makes the story so poignant to today’s audiences, even in translation? All materials will be provided in transliteration; no previous Yiddish experience necessary. Contact Melani Baker for the Zoom invitation.

Class is free of charge. Donations to Beth Shalom’s adult education fund are always appreciated.


Join Rabbi Rose for a closer look at the Committee on Jewish Law and Standards’ new teshuvah (responsum) about livestreaming on Shabbat and what it means for Beth Shalom in the era of COVID-19.  We’ll explore the sources and argumentation of the teshuvah together. Please contact Rabbi Rose for the Zoom invitation.

Interested in a shorter class that is an overview of this subject? Check out Rabbi Rose’s class On One Foot: Livestreaming on Shabbat and Yom Tov.

Join us for a virtual Kabbalat Shabbat experience on Zoom! We’ll prepare to welcome Shabbat with the melodious Kabbalat Shabbat service (including Mourner’s Kaddish). If you can, please bring your candlesticks and matches — we’ll conclude with lighting Shabbat candles and then wishing each other Shabbat Shalom while admiring the flickering flames. You’re welcome to bring a siddur, too, but we’ll also have the words of the siddur available on screen.

For the Zoom link, please contact Rabbi Rose.
