    This is not a deterrent, however, and many thousands of Jews, of all ages, come from all over Moscow to demonstrate that the denial of adequate cultural facilities to Soviet Jews is ultimately a self-defeating policy. Moreover, it was almost impossible for Jews to exist as small retailers if the peasants with whom they did business were leaving the rural areas for the cities. Perhaps the main question raised in this moving memoir is one that the author modestly does not try to resolve, but which left him perplexed as it has other travelers to the Soviet Union. Reb Saunders acknowledges that Danny has chosen a different path; Danny has a brilliant mind and cannot be satisfied within the confines of a Hasidic environment. For many, Wiesel was a great Jewish scholar and philosopher, a sage and an oracle. Reuven tells his father about this, adding that it wasn't unexpected.

    The events of those years still cannot be publicly discussed. The pope encouraged the creation of a network to hide the fugitives in church buildings, monasteries and convents in Italy. Although the Jewish population in colonial America was small, Jews embraced their new homeland and accommodated themselves into the majority Christian population. Reb Saunders organizes his followers into a group called the League for a Religious Israel.

    It is at once dismaying and pathetic that such subterfuges have to be resorted to, but even this is progress. Given the name Ba'al Shem Tov, which means Master of the Good Name, he began to preach that God accepts prayer not only through scholarship and study but also through piety, love, prayer, and worship full of song and dance. Reuven is the son of David Malter, a yeshiva professor. We go in to see what's inside, who lives there. Danny and Reuven enter Hirsch College for the fall term.

He emphasized the mystical presence of God in everything. The spirit in which Simchat Torah is celebrated by non-religious Jews is that of defiant acceptance of the fact that, while expected to assimilate, they are still the object of discrimination in public and professional life. Reuven says to his father that Reb Saunders is a fanatic.

Moreover, it was almost impossible for Jews to exist as small retailers if the peasants with whom they did business were leaving the rural areas for the cities. During the softball game, a ball hit by Danny strikes Reuven in the eye and puts him in the hospital.

The Reb recognizes that the boys have become men. Reuven Malter leads the opposing team, which is composed of Modern Orthodox Jews, who are not as ultra-Orthodox in terms of their religious observances as Hasidic Jews are.

If a Palestinian annoys one of the soldiers, one of the things they'd do is throw him in the Jora, which is a small cell, like a clothing store dressing room.
