Walking back home with Danny following his visit with Reb Saunders, Reuven asks Danny why his  father does not speak to him. Danny is as perplexed about his father's refusal as is Reuven: "My  father believes in silence . . . . He told me to stop running tohim every time I had a problem." Once Reuven returns home and speaks to his father about Danny's father's silence, Reuven gains a  better understanding of why Reb Saunders wanted to speak to him alone, without Danny in the  room. Mr. Malter explains to Reuven that Reb Saunders spoke to Reuven  knowing  that Reuven  would then speak to Danny. In this way, Reb Saunders has spoken to his son. However, Potok leaves  unanswered as yet  why  Reb Saunders deals with his son in silence. Reb Saunders cannot talk  openly with Danny, but Mr. Malter has open, warm communication with Reuven. Potok again shows

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
