Danny Saunders  One of the main characters of the novel, along with Reuven Saunders. Danny, a  Hasidic Jew, struggles to combine his father's strict religious practice with his own more secular  interest in human psychology. Rabbi Isaac (Reb) Saunders  Danny's father, and the leader of his Hasidic sect. Reb Saunders  personifies the Hasidic "rebbe" (from "rabbi," or teacher) in that he is strict and serious and obeys  Jewish law to the letter. Reuven Malter  Danny's friend and the narrator of the novel. Like Danny, Reuven is an Orthodox  Jew. But unlike Danny, Reuven can enter the secular world while still retaining his Orthodox Jewish  identity because he is a Modern Orthodox Jew rather than a Hasidic Jew. David Malter  Reuven's father, who teaches Jewish studies at a yeshiva. Manya
