    Gershom Scholem (Hebrew: גֵרְשׁׂם שָׁלוֹם) (December 5, – Febru ), was a German-born Israeli philosopher and historian. He is widely regarded as the founder of the modern, academic study of was the first professor of Jewish Mysticism at Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His close friends included Walter Benjamin and Leo Strauss, and selected letters Alma mater: Frederick William University. For this reason, I was happy to have stumbled across a book review of a Sholem Aleichem novel – The Adventures of Mottel the Cantor’s Son – by Saul Bellow entitled “Laughter in the Ghetto.” In the review, he suggests something of an existential reading of the schlemiel.

    For what it’s worth, Dauber, as author of the first complete modern biography of Sholem Aleichem, does recount the meeting in his book. I also found that in , five years before Waife-Goldberg’s memoir appeared, a then-emerging poet Edward Field published a narrative poem titled “Mark Twain and Sholem Aleichem” as part of his first. This book is the 50th Anniversary Edition of one of the world's most loved and successful Jewish plays. It is written, as a play, NOT as a novel. If you are looking to buy the novel of the same title, this is NOT the book /5.

Readers who love historical romances (or historicals with romantic elements) should try author Anya Seton (midth C. British). She must have done years of historical research for each novel because the details are so vivid, the reader can almost believe she's living in that period.
