“On Eagles’ Wings” by Laszlo Hamori (from Flight to the Promised Land)
Thrilling new swept through the Yemenite town where twelve-year-old Shalom lived. The Jews in the marketplace whispered excitedly to each other, “
One scorching hot morning a glistening silver airplane appeared over the El Hasched settlement in
The people rushed out of their tents, turned their faces upward and stared at the circling plane.
A shrill voice shouted, “The L-rd G-d has sent us a silver bird.”
And as if on command, four thousand Yemenite Jews – men, women and children – bowed to the ground and, with their arms lifted up, recited the creed of their faith:
A few days later Shalom and his fellow-villagers climbed calmly aboard the huge plane. The only sign of emotion they showed was that the men covered their heads with their shawls and prayed aloud during the entire trip. Shalom spent every minute looking out of the round window of the plane. He could see the

At that point the stewardess was sitting in the pilot’s cabin writing a report for the airport officials in

Leah quickly poured water on the dying embers. Then she explained to the women that it was dangerous to build a fire on the airplane. Finally she pushed the angry copilot back into his own cabin and began to pass out sandwiches, hard-boiled eggs and tea to the passengers.
Having eaten, Shalom made his way up to the door between the passenger cabin and the cockpit. Each time anyone opened the door he stared longingly at the pilots, the strange steering mechanisms, and all the buttons surrounding the pilots’ seat. Yitzhak, an Israeli truck driver he had met in
So much changed in a short time, thought Shalom. At one time back home he had dreamed of the day when he would be a teacher and would interpret Jewish law for his congregation. But Yitzhak had told him there were many rabbis in
