Sunday, May 22, at 7:30 p.m. at the Jewish Community Center in Rockville, 
the 95th anniversary of the great Yiddish writer's death will be marked by 
a program of humor and learning.

Washington cultural treasure Murray Horwitz will read from Beryl Isaac,one 
of Sholem Aleichem~@~Ys funniest stories.

George Washington University professor Max Ticktin will discuss the 
writer's work.  The Yiddish-fluent and the Yiddish-challenged alike are 

Horwitz has won three Peabody awards and many others in a career that 
includes performing, directing, script writing, and managing cultural 
programs at NPR,National Endowment for the Arts, and the Silver Spring 
American Film Institute.  His one-man show on Sholem Aleichem at the New 
York Shakespeare was widely acclaimed.

Professor Ticktin is Associate Director of the Judaic Studies Program at 
George Washington University.  He has taught Hebrew, Yiddish and Judaic 
studies to generations of students in the DC area.

The program will conclude with a reading of Sholem Aleichem's will, one of 
the great "ethical" wills in history, in both Yiddish and English, and a 
performance by Natalie Wexler of his haunting lullaby, "Shlof, Mayn Kind."
