Descriptions, Excerpts and Reviews

From Toledo to Haifa

”FROM TOLEDO TO HAIFA” is an autobiography. It was inspired by the author’s desire to document the research of his family whose origin dates back to Toledo in Spain during the expulsion of Jews in 1492. It is also a story of Sephardic tradition and customs of a family which immigrated to Israel at the end of the eighteenth century. The book includes the author’s experiences during the second world war German Luftwaffe air raids on Haifa, his combat in the Irgun battle in Yaffo, his service as an officer in the Seventh Brigade of the IDF (Israel Defence Force) during the 1947-1948 Israel War of Independence and his electronic engineering work at Rafael.

The Hidden Scroll by Avraham Anouchi

"THE HIDDEN SCROLL" - An Archaeological and Historical Novel

The Hidden Scroll is an archaeological and historical novel spanning from 1930 to 2015 on a professor impassioned by his search for ancient parchments and artifacts from the time of the second Temple of Jerusalem and the Maccabeean era. He encounters obstacles by a radical Islamist organization dedicated to undermine the Jewish claim to the land of Israel – obstacles that include murders, kidnappings, spies, suicide bombers and forged parchments in Rome, Paris, Oran, Buenos Aires, Istanbul, Tibet and archaeological excavations in Israel. The search ends with two most unexpected and dramatic discoveries in a new excavation site in Israel.

"THE LEGACY" - A Memoir in English

This memoir was inspired by my desire to publish my experiences while growing up in Haifa, the city that I love. It is written in the form of a letter from a grandfather to his very young grandchildren. Jewish history and traditions are woven into the manuscript to keep the interest of young adult Jewish children. The essence of this book can be summed up in two words - PASSION and TRADITION. The former is the passion for the land of Israel; and the latter is the desire to pass the Jewish tradition, the Massoret, to the next generation

Avraham is writing his next historical novel

"The King is Dead  - Long Live the Queen"

The events in Judea prior to the arrival of the Romans are rooted in the struggle between Queen Salome Alexandra and her brother Shimon Ben Shetach on one side and King Alexander Yannay on the other. The events in 1980 center on the search by archaeology professor Avner Amram for information on the Queen and her success in saving the Sanhedrin. These two periods are described in an entertwined way. It starts in 112 BCE with eight year old Shimon Ben Shetach encountering three horsemen. When he returns a lost money pouch, he is rewarded with a gold bracelet which he gives to his sister Salome. In 1980, Archaeology Professor Avner Amram examines a parchment and a few coins minted by the Hashmonean King Alexander Yannay. I am interested in any historical information on that period.
