When Danny returns the next day, Reuven is surprised at himself because he is happy to see Danny.  The boys talk and begin to accept each other, discussing their career aspirations. Danny says that he  will become a rabbi and succeed his father as leader of his group of Orthodox Hasidim in the  accepted way — the son becomes tzaddik after the father. If he weren't required to become the  tzaddik for his sect, Danny would become a psychologist. Reuven says that he may become a rabbi,  but his father would like him to become a mathematician. The next day, Danny tells Reuven about the books he reads unbeknownst to his father, who is very  strict about what Danny reads. Danny reads so much because he gets bored studying only Talmud.  He says that he met a man at the library who has been advising him on what to read (Danny later  learns that the man is Mr. Malter, Reuven's father). Reuven observes that Danny looks like a Hasid

    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.
