Event 1

International Yiddish Event
Live Online!
Sholem Aleichem From Every Continent!

When he passed away in 1916, Sholem Aleichem, the most beloved Yiddish writer of all time, requested in his will that his family and friends mark his yortsayt
with readings from his works. “Better to be remembered with laughter,
than not at all,” he said.
