Sholem Aleichem in NY 1907 c. Beit Sholem Aleichem

A riveting portrait of the great writer whose stories became the basis of the Broadway musical Fiddler on the Roof, SHOLEM ALEICHEM: LAUGHING IN THE DARKNESS tells the tale of the rebellious genius who created an entirely new literature. Plumbing the depths of a Jewish world locked in crisis and on the cusp of profound change, he captured that world with brilliant humor.  Sholem Aleichem was not just a witness to the creation of a modern Jewish identity, but one of the very men who forged it.
