Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness A Critics’ Pick!

Congratulations to Joseph Dorman and Film Fund grant recipient Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness for being named a Critics’ Pick in the New York Times!

“Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness” is much more than a documentary biography of “the Jewish Mark Twain,” as the creator of Tevye the Dairyman, Menachem-Mendl and other beloved folkloric characters has been called. It is a rich, beautifully organized and illustrated modern history of Eastern European Jewry examined through the life and work of the author, born Sholem Rabinovich in Pereyaslav (near Kiev) in 1859.

The film is now open in New York.  Find showtimes, read other great reviews, and learn more about the Foundation for Jewish Culture’s work with documentary film.
