What You'll Get
Beloved Yiddish writer Sholom Aleichem created some of the world's most memorable personalities, including the characters in the musical Fiddler on the Roof, but his own life was quite the story as well. Born in an ancient city in Ukraine, he translated Robinson Crusoe into Yiddish when he was only 15. He had an irrational fear of the number 13, and that page in all his books was numbered 12a. When the playwright and novelist died in New York City, his funeral procession was greeted by throngs in three boroughs. Now you can see his life unfold in Sholom Aleichem: A Family Puppet Show at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center in Newtown. Songs will be sung, and you might even learn a little Yiddish. After this fun performance, stick around for a Q&A with the puppeteer and actual members of Aleichem's family.
This show’s running time is one hour.
