"This is an amazing story of the rebirth of the Jewish people in Israel, told through the eyes of Tevye the Milkman, now replanted in the Holy Land with his family,and recounted in the same poignant style of Sholom Aleichem. A literary joy!" Reuven Ben Dov, Book Reviewer for The Jerusalem Post
"I thought I knew everything there was to know about Tevye, but reading Tevye in the Promised Land, I kept turning page after page after page...." Haim Topel, star of Fiddler on the Roof.

They've Got To Make This Into A Movie!
The writer, Tzvi Fishman, has done a magnificent job of taking the characters we loved in Fiddler on the Roof and transporting them to The Holy Land. It's like experiencing the return of the dispersed Jews to Israel. Tevye and his daughters, sons-in-laws, and friends take us through what Jews from all over the world have experienced as they come 'Home' to The Promised Land. Through them we get a better understanding of what it was like to be pioneers in Zion.
This is an amazing book. It provides an education in the history of pioneer settlers in Israel. It also gives us a chance to catch up with a family many of us love.
I can see Tevye now, expressively praying for understanding and guidance. The author has kept the energy and character, except maybe in that wedding to someone the age of his daughters---somebody please explain the meaning behind that one---which was unlikely to have made Golda and his daughters as happy as they were portrayed. Later, in fact, Tevye did cry out to his late wife Golda that if he got out of the mess he was in, mosquito-infested swamp, fever, quick sand or whatever it was, he would dump his new wife, which was not Tevye-like. All-in-all, it was well done. I'm looking forward to seeing the movie, a sequel to 'Fiddler On The Roof', if anyone out there will make it.
I LOVE this book!
It is very interesting.
Fishman also manages to give a realistic portrayal of life in Israel in its very early days.
