About Sholem Aleichem

Solomon Naumovich Rabinovich, better known under his pen name Sholem Aleichem (March 2  1859 – May 13, 1916), was a leading Yiddish author and playwright. The musical Fiddler on the Roof, based on his stories about Tevye the Dairyman, was the first commercially successful English-language stage production about Jewish life in Eastern Europe. The Hebrew phrase "shalom aleichem" literally means "peace be upon you", and is a greeting in traditional Hebrew and Yiddish.
