Chapter 2, Zemyock, Part 6 Summary

Mordecai and Judith's first son is so little at birth that they name him Benjamin, but refer to him as the Mosquito. Judith has three more sons, and Mordecai spends all his time and energy educating them. Benjamin needs to be constantly in motion. Benjamin wonders if there might not be a greater Just Man somewhere other than in Zemyock. When Benjamin meets the reigning Just Man, Benjamin lifts the man's hand to his own head, thereby blessing himself. Benjamin goes to Bialystock for two years to finish his tailoring apprenticeship and befriends Mr. Goldfaden. Mr. Goldfaden says he will then starve to death when he can no longer work. Goldfaden states he is not a good Jew because he no longer believes in God. Goldfaden is replaced by a younger, stronger man who is truly an unbeliever.
