As the much-revived musical, “Fiddler on the Roof,” plays on Broadway, Colorado Hebrew Chorale is preparing a local celebration of Sholem Aleichem, the Yiddishism writer who created Tevye the Dairyman. On Wednesday, May 18 at 6:30 p.m., Colorado Hebrew Chorale presents Sholem Aleichem in Story and Song: Celebrating the 100th Yahrtzeit of Sholem Aleichem at the Sam Gary Branch Library. This FREE public program is appropriate for all ages. Primarily known for his writings, which go well beyond his most familiar character, Tevye of “Fiddler on the Roof,” Aleichem requested that on the anniversary of his death (in Yiddish, Yahrtzeit) people gather to share his joyous stories. Telling stories centering on Sholem Aleichem will be local actor, Albert Banker. Themes of life (l’chaim) and peace (shalom) are illustrated in the songs Colorado Hebrew Chorale will sing from its repertoire. 2961 Roslyn St., Denver.
