Sallah Shabati by Ephraim Kishon( Visual )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in Hebrew and held by 232 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

Der weltberühmte Humorist präsentiert in diesem Band eine ganz spezielle Art von Reiseberichten. So forscht er zum Beispiel auf Rhodos vergeblich nach den offiziell angekündigten Schmetterlingen, und um in den Genuß der ihm vom amtlichen italienischen Reisebüro aufgenötigten Fahrpreisermäßigung zu kommen, muß er zum vollen Preis kreuz und quer durch Italien fahren. Nur mit Mühe wird der Leser verhindern können, daß seine Lachkrämpfe zu ähnlichen Magenbeschwerden führen wie beim seekranken Walfisch, der einstmals den Propheten Jonas verschluckte

Sallah by Ephraim Kishon( Visual )

13 editions published between 1964 and 1997 in Hebrew and English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kishon's subversive satire of Israeli bureacracy initiated the production of a series of films centering on Ashkenazi/Sephardi tension. The story takes place in the fifties during a period of mass immigration to Israel. Topol stars as Sallah, the alternately wily and humble hero who lives with his large family in the ma'abara, spartan transient camps, overwhelmingly populated by Sephardic arrivals who were supposed to stay only for a short time but remained for years. Lazy, amiable Sallah, whose major talent is backgammon, demands shikkun (permanent housing) as he was promised. In his attempt to obtain it, he tries his luck at various schemes ranging from selling a gigantic bulldog from the kibbutz to a bourgeois couple, selling himself to rival political parties and trying to sell his daughter to the man offering the highest marriage price
