About this Book
The year is 1840. Saadyah Monsongeo, a young boy living with his mother and brother in the Jewish Quarter of Casablanca, is at a crossroads. Will he continue learning Torah in the beis medrash, or will he change direction and study in the French-sponsored Alliance school network that is spreading throughout Jewish Morocco?
A pair of meshulachim from Eretz Yisrael are in Casablanca, going from door to door and trying to persuade parents to let them resettle their children in the Holy Land. Some people in the Jewish Quarter are suspicious of them.
Are they just imagining things? Mission in Disguise is a thrilling tale set against a historical background. It will hold young readers in suspense from beginning to end, while at the same time instilling messages of emunah, bitachon, and character improvement.
