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 called "Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness," Joseph Dorman details the life of Sholem Aleichem and the Forward met with him on the Lower East Side to hear about the difficult, but fruitful years Sholem Aleichem spent living in America.
