Description

Though they've lived their entire lives less than five blocks from each other, Reuven Malter and Danny Saunders exist in very different worlds. Reuven blends easily into both his secular Jewish faith and his typical American teen life, while Danny's conservative Hasidic clothes and appearance make him stick out in any crowd. Their improbable friendship teaches them that the differences separating people through cultures and generations are never as great as they seem. It is the now-classic story of two fathers and two sons and the pressures on all of them to pursue the religion they share in the way that is best suited to each. And as the boys grow into young men, they discover in the other a lost spiritual brother, and a link to an unexplored world that neither had ever considered before. In effect, they exchange places, and find the peace that neither will ever retreat from again....

Professional reviews

"First published in 1967, THE CHOSEN explores the relationship between two Jewish fathers and their sons, caught in a world in flux. In post-WWII Brooklyn, amid emerging Holocaust stories, the paths of the two boys cross in a violent episode that leaves one of them partially blinded and the other deeply remorseful. As friendship grows between them, both begin to see the world with new eyes. Jonathan Davis's performance reinforces Potok's assertion that Judaism leaves room for many interpretations, including orthodoxy and intellectualism, Pacifism and Zionism, each in its own way affirming the power of faith and reason. Davis reads intelligently, providing just enough touches of ambiguity to offer listeners an opportunity for discussion and debate, not unlike the Talmudic tradition. S.J.H.
