In “The Chosen,” Chaim Potok uses the relationship between Danny and Reuven to show the social and political problems that they dealt with. Reuven didn’t fully understand the Hasidic view on things; he asked his dad, Mr. Malter, many questions, that of which his dad knew most or just gave his opinions. Reuven was drug into Danny’s father, Reb Saunders’s, synagogue multiple times, where he learned more about the Talmud and the history behind the Hasidic religion. Reb Saunders’s was considered a tzaddik, by which everyone looked upon him as a god, but a tzaddik is just a pious leader that is a messenger between God and man. Also, with Reb Saunders being a tzaddik, he will have to pass down the role to his son, Danny.
When Elie talks about how him and his father were not very close and he was more involved in business than his family, he states,”He rarely displays his feelings, not even with his family, and was more involved with the welfare of others than his own kin,”( Wiesel 4). This explains how that Elie’s father isn’t very involved with his family and his work is his main focus and his father needs to be more focused on his family.Also, Elie’s father does not believe in him and he thinks he is not ready to study the Kabbalah, the ancient Jewish tradition of mystical interpretation of the Bible: he states,”’ You are too young. First, you must study
He loved learning about God and was also interested in mysticism. “I was almost thirteen and deeply observant. By day I studied Talmud and by night I would run to the synagogue to weep over the destruction of the Temple” (3).

Of course, this does not mean we should ever forget the atrocities committed by Hitler. Today though, so-called ‘anti-Zionism’ is the greatest threat to the Jewish people. For example, violence against Jews increased following Trump’s courageous Jerusalem decision. Jerusalem is where our temples stood, our kings ruled, and where our people have yearned to return for two thousand years in the diaspora. Yet, despite the unbreakable bond between the holy city and Judaism, Muslim extremists and their left-wing allies across the globe resorted to bigotry and violence following the announcement.
There was not quite enough descriptive adjectives used to describe the characters in the novel and often left the reader feeling left out or confused. In this quote “Before they got into their parents’ cars, Sam and Coop asked ben if he wanted them to come over once they got out of their gear.”(p 103) there is little to no emotion given from the characters Sam and Coop even though they just lost their important football game it leaves the reader feeling like they didn’t care instead of being disappointed which they were a few paragraphs before. The main protagonist Ben is described as being 11 years old short and respectful but the cognitive process of the child is matched to one of an adult. In the Main conflict Ben helps Shawn become a better quarterback despite wanting to be the starting quarterback and this is often quite unrealistic because at that age most kids are more worried and focused on themselves and would rarely go the extra mile for others while at the same time giving himself a disadvantage. Overall the character development and viewpoints were carefully thought out and without the minor details being picked out above the characters were portrayed
No one comes to Willy’s funeral, because he wasn’t really as well known as he made his family believe. Linda: “But where are all the people he knew? Maybe they blame him…”(Miller 137). Willy Loman believed he was a very “well-liked” salesman. When he in fact was nothing close.
In Washington Irving’s short story “Rip Van Winkle,” the main character Rip Van Winkle is spending his days merrily ignorant of any real work and issues. He tends to the needs of the children and wives of his village instead of his own family as he seemed to have “...an insuperable aversion to all kinds of profitable labor” (pg. 620). This carefree attitude caused problems with his marriage, and his wife, Dame Van Winkle, would often chastise him or kick him out of the house. It is with these thoughts that Rip begins to make his way home early one night, only to be stopped by a “short, square built fellow” (pg.
After oneself in the middle, family and friends come very close behind in the second circle.

Henry has to mention to Victor how his family is not pleased from the fact that Victor has not written them all along.

She means that Atticus treats his family with the same attitude he would treat strangers, and hides nothing. This quote is important because it teaches us that the townspeople know what Atticus is like, and know he is equal to everybody. Quote #10- This quote is when Walter Cunningham has not brought any lunch to school, and is interrogated by Miss Caroline. Scout has to explain why Walter couldn’t have a lunch, and is “whipped” after explaining that Walter is poor. Scout knows that the Cunninghams only pay back in favours, are poor, and work hard, but she can’t explain this all as “well as Atticus did.” This quote is important because it shows how unfamiliar Miss Caroline is to Maycomb, and that Scout is the one looked to to explain these

A big important factor to why this is important in Sammy’s case is because before the moment Queenie took his eye, you can infer that he never really gave his purpose in life much thought and he was curious or yearning for a love. This is because, more than likely he knew how his boss was prior because of his role in the community and his boss knowing his parents but never paid it that much attention or cared that much. Also, because he was not just admiring Queenie but he was trying to read a vibe off of her, he took note of certain things regarding her like the fact that she was not wearing any wedding ring or expensive jewelry, the way his boss changed her mood, and many more personal things about her. In all, this quest is important because it caused Sammy to realize things that he
