Summary:
Master teacher Ruth Wisse brings the stories of Tevye the Dairyman alive like never before. Sholem Aleichem's fourth installment in Tevye the Dairyman, "Hodl," was published in 1904, as imperial Russia was undergoing the first pangs of revolution. Reflecting the political milieu of the time, Sholem Aleichem incorporates a young Jewish communist into the story. When Tevye comes across this young idealist, Pertchik, he is drawn to Pertchik's grit, intellect, and honesty, so Tevye invites him to dinner. Soon, Pertchik meets Tevye's second daughter, Hodl: an avid bookworm and budding intellectual. The two fall in love. However, unlike the first three Tevye stories, this one ends in heartrending tragedy.
