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. 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."
