Sholem Aleichem (1859-1916, aka Solomon Naumovich Rabinovich), was widely known as the Jewish Mark Twain as well as the creator of Fiddler in the Roof.
Born in a tiny village in the Kiev region of the Czarist Empire, Sholem Aleichem began publishing as a child and first started writing about Tevye the Milkman in 1894. Witness to the violent pogroms of 1905, he eventually settled in New York in 1914. He never fully adjusted to life in America, where he died at the age of 57, in 1916. His funeral was one of the largest in American Jewish history.
Known for folk style and wisdom, he reminded his readers that “no matter how bad things get, you got to go on living, even if it kills you.”
