Quote for the Day

The Yiddish author, Sholem Aleichem, “never uses humor to escape from what’s terrible. He creates a perspective from which the most terrible things are funny too. He believed that the highest form of faith was not to accept but to argue with God.”

–translator Hillel Halkin, in the documentary, “Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness” as reported in the Los Angeles Times, Friday, August 5, 2011
