Fiddler Series at Gates of Prayer

Gates of Prayer and Beth Israel in Metairie will hold a three-part series in conjunction with Tulane Summer Lyric Theater’s presentation of “Fiddler on the Roof.”

The series will start on July 18 at 7:30 p.m. at Gates of Prayer with the famous Marc Chagall image of “Fiddler,” an exploration of his art and a presentation by Sergio Diaz, senior consultant at Martin Lawrence Gallery on Royal Street. He is one of the leading representatives of the Chagall estate.

On July 25 at 7:30 p.m., Gates of Prayer Rabbi Robert Loewy will use clips from the film version of “Fiddler” to explore the historical, literary and religious perspectives on the story from late 19th century Czarist Russia.

A block of tickets has been reserved for the Aug. 2 opening night performance of “Fiddler” at Tulane. They can be purchased from the Gates of Prayer office for $30.

The show will run through Aug. 5.
