In the first chapter, we learn how important religion is to the young Eliezer. Though his father thinks that he is too young to immerse himself in religious mysticism, Eliezer is very devout and focuses all his energy on religious study. As a young boy, religion comes as naturally to Eliezer as living and breathing, and we should pay attention to how his attitude towards religion and God changes as Night progresses.

Elie's world revolves around religion, going to temple, and an intense desire to study the Kabbalah. Little is said about his family or homelife in this chapter.
