The Hadassah-Brandeis Institute is accepting proposals for our Spring 2015 Artist in Residence program.  This residency provides artists the opportunity to be in residence at Brandeis University while working on a significant artistic project in the field of Jewish gender studies, and to produce an exhibit for the Kniznick Gallery at the Women’s Studies Research Center (WSRC) at Brandeis University.

Artist, Sarah Ostrowsky Berman

Two wonderful colleagues at Western University in London, Ontario, had the good fortune of accidentally discovering a treasure trove of paintings, drawings and archival documents by the New York artist, Sarah Berman (1893-1957) during a visit to a neighbour near Halifax, Nova Scotia.  I was delighted to be contacted by them to discuss how we could best showcase this collection.

Query: Video of Fiddler on the Roof stage production

Does anyone have, or know of, a video recording of any stage production of
Fiddler on the Roof?  As part of a First Year Seminar this fall I would

than only screening the movie.

Replies off list are welcome.
