The 4th in the Rebbe Mendel series!


What does Shlomo Klieg, an eccentric zoology research professor and Miklush, an eleven-year-old war orphan who spent three years in a solitary cellar in Prague, have in common? Bonded together by broken hearts, Professor Klieg disguises Miklush as the son of an arab fisherman so he won't have to be smuggled into Palestine with forty-nine refugees in animal crates.

Upon the threshold of a new life, they, along with Colin Mollycoddle, the professor's assistant, Enrico, the pet pygmy elephant, and the trained carrier pigeons, arrive in Israel on the eve of the War of Independence.

Travel with Miklush as his heart opens to his new benefactor and his mind opens to the Torah he didn't have a chance to learn. See how he helps to solve the mystery of the boat thieves who stole Enrico, on the way to the London zoo, and how he secretly helps boys in his class have a better place to live.

Learn the private language that entangles Professor Klieg in a Russian mystery that forces him to risk his life to travel behind the iron curtain searching for Miklush's family.

This is a book that will touch your heart, tantalize your mind, and uplift your spirit as you witness the birth of a new Home On The Hill in Eretz Yisroel.

    I was ordering a few seforim during the Chanukah Sale and ordered this Holy Sefer by chance. What a fortunate choice. Rav Luria's ZTZAL Torah is very very chashuv. The author Rav Benyosef did a fine job writing very important Torah thoughts on Shabbos and the Chagim in a clear manner. I have tremendous thanks since I read that Rav Luria ZTZAL was nifter only three weeks ago. Thank you Feldheim for making this Sefer a special.
