Sholem Aleichem: Historian John Kenrick

May 16, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Who could have predicted that a Yiddish writer’s tales of an impoverished Jewish milkman in czarist Russia, reborn as a smash Broadway hit, would become a cultural touchstone of lasting popularity and global recognition into the 21st century?

As we honor Jewish American Heritage Month, Scotch Plains Public Library’s May programs will examine the phenomenon of Fiddler on the Roof from a variety of vantage points.

Theater historian John Kenrick will discuss how Sholem Aleichem’s short stories about a Jewish milkman in a Russian shtetl (small town) became a lasting worldwide hit.

No registration is necessary.

 

Plan to join us for these other ‘Fiddler’ programs:
