Greenville One Center

A film by Max Lewkowicz, Fiddler: Miracle of Miracles, is the origin story behind one of Broadway's most beloved musicals, Fiddler on The Roof, and its creative roots in early 1960s New York, when "tradition" was on the wane as gender roles, sexuality, race relations and religion were evolving. For the first time, intimate interviews with the show's creators reveal how the tremendous success and worldwide impact of Fiddler and its subsequent film adaptation is most appropriately viewed through the lens of the social upheaval and change in mid-20th century America. Yet, as the film shows the true wonder of wonders and miracle of Fiddler is that audiences world-wide and for the last half century claim the story as their own.

Who We Are

Connecting our community, one film at a time.

Our mission is simple: showcase films that expose the community of Greenville to the rich and diverse heritage of Judaism.  Our hope is that through the art of film, we can inspire our community to see beyond differences, and rather connect over the ties that bind us all, like respect, love and passion. Our selection of movies allows for an opportunity to think critically and feel powerfully. We hope you join us, whether it's as a participant, volunteer or sponsor...or all three!
