Decades after the top marksman in the Russian army shot at a Jewish rabbi at close range, Reuvein, an unjured boy from Haifa, finds out what happened to both the rabbi and the marksman. His discovery helps him withstand the pain of his injury and even changes the life of one of the doctors in the hospital. A dark and damp stairwell that serves as a bicycle repair shop is where a boy of 11 follows in the footsteps of a youth who completed his midnight mission over one hundred years ago. Yochanan and Itamar are "suspects" who together solve the riddle of two long past yet strikingly similar episodes of theft. Eliyahu and his friend find out how to escape a knife-wielding Arab bandit...even when it looks impossible. Our Heroes is a collection of gripping tales about brave children whose stories and deeds measure up to those of the towering personalities of the past. Both captivating and educational, these stories will inspire children of all ages to respond to life's challenges with nobility of soul and deed. The eleven children who star in these thrilling adventures and the Torah giants they emulate are the heroes of author and educator Chaim Walder in this, his sixth book, Our Heroes.
