Brand new postage stamps celebrating 50 years since Fiddler on the Roof opened onstage!
How can it be half a century already?
We lived in Chicago then and my mother took me to the theater to see a live musical for the first time.
Photos of the drawings are by Pini Hemou, Israel Philatelic Federation website
The three stamps in this set are based on drawings by Chaim Topol, one of the first actors to portray Tevye in Hebrew.
Everything you ever wanted to know about Tevye the Milkman is at Wikipedia.
