Short biography
Sholem Aleichem's pseudonym, meaning "peace be with you," is a common greeting in Yiddish and Hebrew. He's often referred to as the "Jewish Mark Twain" because of the two authors' similar writing styles (and their use of pen names). When Mark Twain heard of this, he reportedly said, "Please tell him that I am the American Sholem Aleichem." Sholem Aleichem and his wife had six children; the American writer Bel Kaufman is their granddaughter.
