Sallah Shabati (Hebrew: סאלח שבתי) is a 1964 Israeli comedy film about the chaos of Israeli immigration and resettlement. This social satire placed the director Ephraim Kishon and producer Menahem Golan among the first Israeli filmmakers to achieve international success. It also introduced actor Chaim Topol (Fiddler on the Roof) to audiences worldwide.
The protagonist’s name, Sallah Shabati, is perhaps a play on the phrase ‘Sliḥa she’bati, “I apologize for coming”. In earlier print versions of Kishon’s short stories which were revised for the film, the character was known as Saadia Shabtai.
