A five year old boy experiences the rescue of Ethiopian Jews in Operation Solomon as if it is a dream.
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."
