What are some characteristics of Hasidic Jews that Reuven describes? How do they differ from Reuven and the other boys on his team?
The Hasidic Jews wear very traditional, Orthodox clothing, including tzizit, fringes that stick out from underneath their shirts. Many of them are growing beards, as Orthodox Jews do not shave. They also have long side curls that fall down next to their ears. The team almost looks to be wearing uniforms, since their traditional clothing is all black and white. Reuven and his teammates, on the other hand, wear jeans or whatever loose clothing they had available. They do not play wearing their religious garments.
