Jacket Copy:

Legend has it that on the night of Hoshana Rabbah, the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles, the sky opens. If one sees it happen and makes a wish, the wish will come true. Shlomah, Esther, and Moshe slip out one night to the synagogue yard to see the sky open and make their wishes: Shlomah to be as wise and rich as King Solomon, Moshe to be as learned as Rabbi Moshe Maimonides, and Esther to be as beautiful as Queen Esther. But when the sky opens to reveal angels, fiery chariots, and Jacob's ladder, the three children find themselves making very strange wishes indeed.
