The Chosen by Chaim Potok
In 1940s Brooklyn, a strong and unlikely friendship forms between Reuven Malther, a Modern Orthodox Jew with a Zionist father, and Danny Saunders, the son of a Hasidic rabbi. Together they navigate adolescence, family conflicts, a crisis of faith, loss, love and the journey to adulthood. The clashes between fathers, between each son and his own father, and between the two young men, provide the context for this classic exploration of fathers, sons, faith, loyalty and the power of love.
