DCJCC LitFest: Jeremy Dauber The Worlds of Sholem Aleichem: The Remarkable Life and Afterlife of the Man Who Created Tevye:

“Washington District of Columbia Jewish Community Center
1529 16th Street NW
October 9 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Free

Novelist and playwright Sholem Aleichem was a founding giant of modern Yiddish literature. His memorable characters, which include Fiddler’s “Tevye the Dairyman,” offer a window onto late 19th century Eastern European Jewish life. But Sholem Aleichem’s own life story, complete with dramatic reversals of fortune, is just as compelling.

The Bernard Wexler Fund for Jewish History, established in 1996, supports an annual lecture that brings outstanding speakers, scholarly research and contemporary issues to the forefront of learning at the DCJCC.”
