The musical "Fiddler on the Roof," with lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, book by Joseph Stein, and music by Jerry Bock, is set in or around 1905 in Imperial Russia's Pale of Settlement. It is predicated on Sholem Aleichem's tale "Tevye and His Daughters" (also known as "Tevye the Dairyman") and other narratives. Tevye, a milkman in the village of Anatevka, is the central character of the story. Tevye is trying to safeguard the Jewish cultures of his family from external influences. His three older daughters' strong personalities and desire to marry for love must be accepted; even though Tevye finds his daughters' husband selections less and less agreeable. The Jews are forced to leave their neighborhood because of a decree issued by the Tsar.
