about

This jerk Leybke leaves his wife and kid, he goes to New York where he becomes “all right” - a successful sewing machine operator, he dresses like a ‘sport,’ he sweats over a girl from back home. When she reminds him he's married, he sends his wife a divorce. Here in America, Leybke stands under the khupe with Tsipe while the cantor sings. Back home, Reyzl sits alone.
