Link from: Shulamith:

Shulamith: Shulamith is the "black and comely" princess in the Song of Songs in the Old Testament, whose name holds echoes of the Hebrew words 'shalom' for peace and 'Yerushalayim' for Jerusalem. According to Felstiner, Shulamith is often seen as the Jewish people itself. (John Felstiner, Paul Celan: Poet, Survivor, Jew (New Haven 1995), p. 38)
