Lazar Wolfe is the village butcher who fancies Tzeitel after seeing regularly her in his shop every week. He soon asks Tevye for her hand in marriage. Tevye originally makes an agreement that promises Tzeitel to him but when Tzeitel protests, he ends the agreement and lets her marry Motel Kamzoil the poor village tailor. Because traditions were different at that time, Lazar Wolfe is around 60 years old when he wishes to marry Tzeitel.
