Number of Pages: 
32 p.
Note: 
An Ethiopian boy named Rachamim tells the story of the life of the Beta Israel in Gondar, Ethiopia, of their hazardous journey to the Sudan to escape famine, and of "Operation Moses," the secret transport and resettling of the Beta Israel in Israel. His narrative, told simply and with conviction, describes the history and customs of Ethiopian Jews, their way of life, and their amazement at discovering that there were white Jews in a fabled land awaiting them. The black and white illustrations capture the flavor of the narrative and many of its essential details. This appealing introduction to the Beta Israel was one of the first written for children.
