Sallah Shabati by Ephraim Kishon( Visual )

3 editions published in 2007 in Hebrew and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1949, a Yemenite Jewish family that was flown to Israel during "Operation Magic Carpet", a clandestine operation that flew 49,000 Yemenite Jews to Israel the year after the state was formed, is forced to move to a government settlement camp in Israel, not realizing the challenges that lie on the horizon for new immigrants. Sallah, the family patriarch with a permanent scowl, discovers the hard way that Israeli bureaucracy could keep his family out of a permanent home for years -- and he vows to fight it...his way. His aversion to hard work and socialist values soon make him a deviant in the eyes of kibbutz leaders and government officials. The sharp, often hilarious satire that became the most successful film in Israeli history is about new immigrants Sallah and his family, who are left in a shack near their promised apartment and are abandoned for months
