Summary A riveting portrait of the great writer whose stories became the basis of the Broadway musical Fiddler on the Roof. 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 new modern Jewish identity, but one of the very men who forged it.
