Personal Fact of Sholem Aleichem

Sholem Aleichem was a renowned Yiddish novelist, essayist and playwright. He is considered to be among the most famous Yiddish authors during the late 19th and early 20th century. As a celebrated journalist, playwright, novelist, and editor, he became one of the founding fathers of modern Yiddish literature, who wrote under the pseudonym Sholem Aleichem, which literally meant  peace be upon you  in Yiddish.

He wrote stories in Hebrew and Russian before switching to Yiddish. Rather, he was the first author to create stories for children in Yiddish language. He authored over 40 volumes of novels, stories and plays, during his nearly three-decade literary career. He categorized his works into four genres  monologues, holiday narratives, children stories and Kasrilevke tales, of which monologues became his forte.

His two characters, Tevye and Menakhem Mendl, which he created towards the end of the 19th century, became the protagonists of most of his novels. In fact, his Tevya the Dairyman became an inspiration for the infamous musical Fiddler on the Roof, which was later adapted into a film. Such was the impact of his distinguished literary creations that his name has been included on an impact crater on the Mercury planet
