A Deeply Emotional Story of Faith, Family and Friendship

One of the most beloved novels of the 20th century comes to life in this captivating portrayal of faith, family, and friendship. In 1940s Brooklyn, two brilliant young Jewish boys grow up sharing a love of baseball. Although they live just five blocks from each other, the shadows of their fathers keep them a world apart. As they reach adulthood, their complicated friendship will test the bounds of belief, understanding and reconciliation. Set against the backdrop of WWII and the creation of the state of Israel, Chaim Potok's acclaimed story balances transformation and tradition, growing up and growing wise, and living out your truths – no matter the consequences.
