From Sholem Aleichem to Larry David: The Rise of Jewish Comedy in America

November 3 at 7:00 p.m. in the Campus Social Hall

A week prior to our production of Fiddler on the Roof, Columbia professor Jeremy Dauber provides an entertaining homage to its creator, Sholem Aleichem, the man he says "did nothing less than create modern Jewish literature, modern Jewish humor, and a modern Jewish homeland in literature."

Read a review of Dauber's book in the KC Jewish Chronicle >

This presentation is made possible by a generous contribution from the Sam M. Schultz Jewish Book Fair Fund.
