From the reading, Tuvia seems to be a pretty good guy. He has a love of knowledge, also he seems to be very calm and loving. I personally think he is a great man, helping the to rescue and house the jews. when he was a younger he was a no nonsense kind of guy, beating up his neighbor for trying to mess with their family crops. his marriage is a bit odd though. going to a match maker and being paired with a woman much older than him, i'm sure his family was wondering what he was thinking!
