In this workshop, Tevye The Milkman Sang In Yiddish: Songs From Fiddler On The Roof, we will learn some of the beautiful songs from the musical Fiddler on the Roof, in Yiddish, as they were sung in the first production outside the United States in Israel, “A fidler afn dakh.” Participants will have the lyrics in Yiddish (phonetics) and will be able to sing along.

Teacher: Elisheva Edelson

Price: $25 per individual workshop.
