The Chosen

Im writing an essay about Chaim Potok's The Chosen and im having trouble writing an outline.I dont understand the main conflict that Reuven is going through.I think his conflict is dealing with his friend Danny's choice of studying something very different than what his father expects.

"In The Chosen, the setting of each scene contributes to our understanding of the book’s central themes. The baseball field reveals the theme of conflict between two opposing forces, the hospital brings about different perceptions of the world, the library represents the characters’ expanding minds, and so on."
