Jewish Children by Sholem Aleichem (Free Audio Book)
Jewish Children by Sholem Aleichem – A free audiobook
Read by Adrian Praetzellis
Jewish Children, written by Sholem Aleichem is a collection of emotional, funny and sometimes disturbing stories about the life of Jewish children in 19th century Russian Jewish village. Even though this is written from a child’s perspective, it holds significance from its view of the world during a time when Jews are mostly ostracized.
Sholem Rabinovich, who lived from 1859 – 1916, was born in Pereiaslav, Ukraine and immigrated to New York sometime later in his life. His short stories about Tevye and his daughter were also adapted into a musical play titles Fiddler on the Roof. Jewish Children is a poignant work that is taken from the thoughts and eyes of children. This free audiobook is available for download and is read by Adrian Praetzellis.
