In the section of Night that I asked you to read for today, we see Wiesel deep in a crisis of faith. He feels he can no longer believe in God, and on page 69, he explains, “Deep inside me, I feel a great void opening.”
How is his new loss of faith affecting him personally? Has he truly lost all belief in a higher power? What fills this void? What is he now living for? And why, later in this section, does Wiesel pray to the God in whom he no longer believes to give him the strength not to do what Rabbi Eliahu’s son has done?
If he feels he can no longer believe in God, what does he believe in?
