The main character in Elie Wiesel's novel Night is a young boy named Eliezer. This story is about Eliezer's experiences during World War II. Throughout the story, Wiesel presents evidence that support the idea that Eliezer is devoutly religious.
In chapter one, Eliezer states that he studies the Talmud daily and also goes to the Temple every night. The Talmud is the body of Jewish civil and ceremonial law. Despite his father believing that he is too young, Eliezer also wants to study Kabbalah. Kabbalah is a Jewish school of thought. One night when he is at the temple, Eliezer meets Moishe the Beadle who happens to know a lot about Kabbalah and begins to teach him.
As the novel progresses, Eliezer mentions his faith multiple times and continues to pray regularly. Eliezer is forced to see many horrific things while living in a concentration camp called Auschwitz and his faith is challenged. He wonders if his God is a just God, a God who can be indifferent to the suffering he is witnessing, if his God is a good God. Despite having these thoughts and feelings, Eliezer remains devoutly religious and continues to pray for strength.
