Chaim Potok’s The Chosen is one of my favorite books. The story is about two teenagers growing up in WWII era New York City. The story is about two boys and their fathers who are from two different Jewish sects. The boys were taught to fear and demonize the other, until they meet on a softball field and one hurts the other in a way that brings them together and changes their lives forever.
