Fiddler on the Roof at 50

Fiddler on the Roof turns 50 this year. When it appeared on Broadway in 1964, it was an immediate hit, with memorable songs, themes of Jewish post-war concern, and the more universal topics of assimilation and how to balance innovation with ritual.

As a contemporary response to this storied musical, we partnered with JCCSF's 3200 stories to put out a call for videos of those willing to belt out one of the most beloved melodies, Tradition, but with a modern twist. The result is Break/Tradition, watch it below:

Break/Tradition was Produced by Dan Wolf for 3200 Stories and by Gravity Goldberg for the Contemporary Jewish Museum, and edited by David Szlasa.
