The first update of Project Ben-Yehuda for August includes the complete text of Mas'ot Binyamin Hashelishi (Voyages of Benjamin the Third), by Mendele Mocher-Sfraim (S.Y. Abramovitz). It is a hilarious little novel that presents Binyamin, a Jewish Don Quixote of sorts, complete with a simple sidekick, going on a wacky journey from Batalon ("Idleville", I might translate), a fictional east-European Jewish town, to the land of Israel.

If you can read Hebrew, give it a shot. It's excellent.
