Though Sholem Aleichem is widely known for his depictions of shtetl life, the famed Yiddish writer spent a number of years living and writing in America. In a new documentary titled "Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness," director Joseph Dorman details the life of Sholem Aleichem, from his early successes to his many, painful failures. The Forward met with Dorman on the Lower East Side to discuss the difficult, but fruitful years Sholem Aleichem spent living in America.
