    On the first day of Passover in Danny and Reuven's senior THE CHOSEN book of college, Reb Saunders invites Reuven to their home to talk with him and Danny. Reb Saunders tells Reuven that he knows that Danny will not be assuming the tzaddikate, that he has known for a long time, and that he accepts it. But the eye that blinks, that is something. German Jews Other Jews who arrived in the United States in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries came from Central Europe and spread throughout the United States, establishing communities in almost every state. Relationships between fathers and sons are important in The Chosen, especially in the choices of the sons' careers. Included in this large number of immigrants are Jews.

    In Europe, before coming to the United States, these THE CHOSEN book had experienced a relaxation of the Orthodox tenets of their Jewish faith. Central to the novel are Potok's concerns about Jews who live in the United States. Ann continues as a freelance editor for Chosen Books, while Jane heads up Chosen editorial as director, as she has done since Danny also confides that he secretly reads every day in the public library, studying books of which his father would disapprove. What my father had anticipated was now actually happening. While in the hospital, he becomes friendly with two fellow patients: Tony Savo, an ex-boxer, and Billy Merrit, a young blind boy.

The Hasids view the merely Orthodox Jews as goyim or apikorsim, that is practically as heretics. Modern Orthodox Jews believe that they can be committed to time-honored Jewish traditions and observances and yet still participate in the general American society.

During the summer of that THE CHOSEN book, Reuven's father suffers a heart attack, and Reuven goes to stay in the Saunders home. They concede that a rabbi is someone who knows more about Jewish law and THE CHOSEN book than a layperson, but a rabbi is not needed in many instances — for example, all THE CHOSEN book is required to hold a prayer service is the presence of ten Jewish males.
