Adventures of a Lifetime Series

Give your boys a dose of high adventure with the Adventures of a Lifetime series.  These books combine intrigue, memorable characters and the charm of Eretz Yisroel, with a touch of history for good measure.  The actions starts up early, and it keeps taking exciting twists and turns throughout the plot, keeping boys hooked.

So far we’ve read Destination Unknown and The Churva Plot, and we look forward to reading the latest adventure, Strangers in Yerushalayim.
