A quiet, mystic young rabbi heads to postwar Korea to serve as one of three Jewish chaplains in the entire country. He juggles his duties there, his study of Kabbalah, and a needy friend. This friend’s father was one of many Jews who worked on the atomic bomb, and the son struggles with guilt and a desire to exonerate Jews and Judaism from this. The story is darker than Potok’s others—more akin to I Am the Clay than, say, The Chosen—but holds the same mystical beauty and profundity. The description of the friends’ visit to Hiroshima is particularly moving.
