The Chosen

Danny and Rebbe Saunders are part of a group of Jews referred to as Hasids. What is the proper term to use to refer to the group to which Reuven and David Malter belong?

Chapter 7 refers to syngogues where Jews who were not Hasidim worshipped.

Reuven and David belong to a sect of Modern Orthodox Jews, meaning they do not follow the Jewish laws as diligently as their Hasidic brothers. Hasidic Jews follow ALL laws without question; their more modern counterpoints follow the same main laws but like many other religions have adjusted some of the more difficult laws to fit their more "modern" lifestyles.
