The Alshich family came to Eretz Yisrael from Yemen during Operation "On the Wings of Eagles", and found themselves living in a hostile, anti-religious immigrant camp. Dudi and Udi are appalled by the living conditions of the Yemenite olim, as well as the many troubles that befall the Alshich family.
Set in the early 1950s, Dudi and Udi in "Search of Ancient Sefarim" is a stark, yet hopeful portrayal of the difficult early years of the State of Israel, and the ultimate triumph of good over evil. Once again, Sarah Leon's suspenseful writing reminds us that despite our enemies' greatest efforts, Torah will never be forgotten from Klal Yisrael.
Join Dudi and Udi as they set out to help the Yemenite children continue to learn Torah and find the Alshich family's antique sefarim. Cry along with the Alshichs when their little girl mysteriously disappears and laugh when the mischievous Champ saves the day as only a pet monkey can.
