Statue of Solomon Rabinovich

Born Sholem Rabino­witz, or Solomon Rabinovich, Yiddish-language author Shalom Aleichem portrayed dreamers, schemers and eternal optimists with tremendous wit and affection. “Fiddler on the Roof” was based on some of his stories. September’s photo shows a statue of him, located on Rognidynska Street in his hometown of Kiev, Ukraine.

Five readers sent in correct answers, and JOYCE PERRY of Los Angeles, California, won the drawing. We say “Mazel tov!” to Jackie Korbholz of Stockton, California, for her mitzvah (good deed) in sending us the photo.
