sive, and delivered confidentially.

and a tragedy for the poor”
(Sholom Aleichem)

Sholom Aleichem had a humorous view of the world around him. From taking a pen name, literally
meaning “Peace be with you” to wondering... “Where is Peace?”
The masterful story teller was born Solomon Rabinowitz, in the Ukraine, Russia in 1856 and died in New York City
in 1916. He was one of twelve siblings living with a stepmother, and a story telling father, in tight quarters and
scarce money, as well as being a witness to the difficult life of the Jewish people in his little shtetl. This setting
provided young Solomon with vivid material for many of his stories.
Sholom Aleichem is known as one of the world’s greatest Yiddish writers, he had written stories, plays like,
“Fiddler on the Roof”, and poems, which were published in twenty-eight volumes.
Although Sholom Aleichem’s rich descriptive stories, infused with tradition, rituals and human nature, (which
could be lost somewhat in translation) are written about times long gone, his message of the importance of the
family and tradition is ever lasting. Let’s turn the clock backwards and learn from Sholom Aleichem how to dream
wisely, how not to play foolish games, to live richly with humor in our hearts, and turn tragedy into a blessing.
Visitors will
• Explore Sholom Aleichem’s Crater on “Mercury”
• Visit the Shtetl: The Chaider, the tailor and the butcher
