Chapter One opens in 1941, when Eliezer is twelve. He wants to study the cabbala (a form of Jewish mysticism), but his father tells him that he is too young. Despite his father's lack of support, Eliezer decides to study the cabbala anyway and chooses Moché as his teacher. Moché teaches him not to search for answers from God, but rather to try to ask the right questions. During 1942 and 1943, Eliezer devotes himself to his religious studies
