When Saul was a little boy, he used to listen to stories about a place called Eretz Yisrael – the land of Israel. Everything he heard inspired him and he longed to know what it would be like to live there and to walk barefoot in the soft, golden sand.

When Saul grows up and finally gets his wish, will it live up to his expectations?

Follow Saul in this heart-warming tale about following your dreams and the importance of accepting everyone, no matter where they come from.

'Saul from Romania and Solomon from Yemen meet in the desert of pre-state Israel, after achieving their lifelong dreams to feel the sand of the Holy Land under their feet. Although they have different clothing, languages, and even skin tones, they recognize each other as brothers when they recite the Hallel prayer together in the joy of their arrival. A quiet and lovely book.’

An old man, almost one hundred years old, comes outside to plant a fig tree. Hadrian stops his horse. ‘What are you doing?’ he asks the old man. ‘That tree is so small and you are so old!
 Surely you won’t live long enough to eat its fruit!’ The old man responds: ‘if I don’t then my children will’. Three years later, Hadrian returns. Meeting the old man again, he is shocked to see that the tree has…
