The amazing story of a true rescue operation that took place not so long ago...
Shimmy is an Israeli boy, the son of a Holocaust survivor, who boards a plane from Tel Aviv to Paris on the 29th of Sivan, 5736 (1976). The plane never lands at its destination. Shimmy, along with his father and the rest of the passengers aboard the aircraft, fall into the hands of dangerous terrorists who deliver them to the hostile environment of Entebbe, Uganda.
A daring rescue plan is set into motion, "Operation Entebbe," or "Operation Yonatan,"but Shimmy isn't even aware of the true drama happening around him. Why? Because of something else that took place, 35 years beforehand, during a completely different but also terrifying experience.
Operation Entebbe: The Dangerous Play relates the amazing story of a true rescue operation that took place not so long ago. Although Shimmy and his family are fictional characters, the historical context of the story is completely factual. As you read the incredible story, you'll be fascinated by the miracles Hakadosh Baruch Hu performs for the Jewish people, time and time again!
