Notes on Bel Kaufman and Sholom Aleichem by Merle Molofsky

(First published on Clio’s Psyche)

I well remember when Bel Kaufman’s book came out, in the 1960′s, with that evocative title, “Up the Down Staircase, a title that somehow encapsulated everything about school as I knew it. I had three marvelous years at P.S. 208 in Brooklyn, fourth, fifth, sixth, and all the rest was up the down staircase….

The stories of Sholem Aleichem, which I read when I was very young, were a major influence on my worldview, my perspective, and my sense of my ethnic identity.

My favorite story was “A Yom Kippur Scandal”. I found two videos on YouTube, Part 1 and Part 2, a telling of the story in Yiddish, with English subtitles. Here are the links, for the curious. If the links don’t work, go to YouTube, type in Sholem Aleichem, A Yom Kippur Scandal, and you will have access to the videos.
