Night by Eli Weisel . “I met him in 1941. I was almost thirteen and deeply observant.” pg. 1 1.This passage is the starting two sentences in the third paragraph of page one. It is being told in first person point of view by Eli Wiesel, the author. He speaks about how he seeks for guidance from someone who can teach him in his studies of Kabbalah. 2.Wiesel, the author includes this passage as a way of telling the audience, what time this book will be taking place and how old he was. He also informs the readers that the book will be connected to the Holocaust and explain his faith in God from the age of thirteen and on. 3.This passage connects to my life right now because I am very close in age with him in the book and I am trying to expand my knowledge in theCatholic faith. I enjoy learning more about the messages in the bible and being able to learn from someone who truly understands it. The passage makes me feel grateful because unlike Eliezer’s father who wants to drive him away from studying Kabbalah, my parents are the opposite. My parents support me and would love for me to grow in my faith. “Jews, listen to me! That’s all I ask of you. No money. No pity. Just listen to me!” he kept shouting in synagogue, between the prayer at dusk and the evening prayer.” pg. 7 1.This passage is the third paragraph of page seven. Moishe the Beadle, the man who is speaking, is trying to warn all the Jews of what type of evil is coming. 2.Moishe, a man who escaped the Nazis evil wrath and who experienced getting wounded and almost left for dead, has come to the Jews to help them. He tries to warn them that they will be coming and willbe deported, yet the Jews decide to
ignore him and treat him like a madman. Moishe trying to warn the Jews and getting ignored impacts theJews in the long run. They will have to face what is coming their way. 3.This quote impacts me in many ways.It teaches me to listen to what elders need to say. Everyone has been through something extremely hard and painful. And when someone tells you their story, you must listen and see how it may imply to your life. The Jews may have had a chance to go in hiding yet they did not listen to Moishe’s story that could have impacted them in many ways.
