Moché is generally well liked, works in the Hasidic synagogue, and is a very pious and humble individual. In 1941, when he is twelve, the narrator, Eliezer Wiesel, wants to study the cabbala (a form of Jewish mysticism), but his father tells him that he is too young. Although people in Singhet liked Moche, he was considered odd and eccentric. This is, in part, why so many people believed his stories about what was in store for them.
