Synopsis

Sholem Aleichem was a rebellious genius who created an entirely new literature and whose stories became the basis of the Broadway musical, "Fiddler on the Roof." Plumbing the depths of a Jewish world locked in crisis and on the cusp of profound change, he captured that world with brilliant humor. Aleichem was not just a witness to the creation of a new modern Jewish identity, but one of the very men who forged it.
