Mirele Efros, "the Jewish Queen Lear," was the masterpiece of influential Yiddish playwright Jacob Gordin. Berta Gershen gives a memorable performance as Mirele, a wealthy and pious widow whose devotion to her children extends to hand-picking a wife for her eldest son. Unfortunately, she gravely mistakes the young woman's character.

Mirele Efros, a wealthy widow, dominates her family in all aspects, in the name of devotion, including the choice of picking the bride for her son. But, Shaindel, as a daughter-in-law, schemes to gain control of the Efros-family wealth and, when accomplished, heaps indignity-after-indignity upon her mother-in-law. But, in time, Shaindel goes to Mirele and begs forgiveness. +
