Danny's study of Freud also takes on a different dimension; Freud becomes a metaphor for religion for Danny, who approaches his study of psychoanalysis just as he studies the Talmud. Psychoanalysis thus becomes a religion for Danny, replacing his Hasidic studies as the intellectual endeavor of priority.
