Jerry Bock, 1928-2010

Jerry Bock, who wrote the music for Fiddler on the Roof, has died. If you’re Jewish you saw the movie at least seven times growing up and still have days where the melody to “If I Were a Rich Man” or “Tradition” or “Matchmaker” or “Sunrise, Sunset” is inexplicably lodged in your head. Bock was 81.
