A beautiful picture book set against the backdrop of the airlift of Ethiopian Jews to Israel.

A young Jewish boy in Ethiopia has a dream of flying on Eagle's wings to a new home. In this story of dreams, choices, and what it means to belong, Yosef and his family choose to fly to Israel, the land of their ancestors — fulfilling their long-held dream.

An author's note provides background about the Jews of Ethiopia and the 1991 rescue mission, called Operation Solomon.

Reviews for Yosef's Dream:

"This story about Operation Solomon in 1991 is far gentler than another recent picture book, Yuvi’s Candy Tree by Lesley Simpson (Kar-ben, 2011), which tells of a little girl’s terrifying journey from Ethiopia to Sudan and then on to Israel through Operation Moses."
