The 1971 movie, Fiddler on the Roof, captured my attention this afternoon. Undoubtedly I saw the movie decades ago but had forgotten the plot. I’m not well-versed in current world news; I only know what I hear and see on the television news. But I couldn’t help seeing the similarity between the events in 1905 Russia and 2014 Russia. Frequently we see broadcasts showing thousands of displaced persons. We see the conflict affecting Israel and Jewish believers–and adjoining countries and opposing religions.
