About the Program

In conjunction with the Bay Area celebration of Fiddler at 50 [commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the Broadway production; visit for more information], The Contemporary Jewish Museum screens the 1971 film version of Fiddler on the Roof, starring Topol as a Russian Jewish peasant struggling with the meaning of tradition (1971, 181 min).


Public Programs and New Media Initiatives at The Contemporary Jewish Museum are made possible with lead support from The Jim Joseph Foundation. Major support has been provided by the Leavitt Family and supporting sponsorship comes from The Toole Family Charitable Foundation, David B. Gold Foundation, In Memory of Benjamin Alpert.


Films on Free First Tuesdays are made possible by The John & Marcia Goldman Foundation.
