In the German concentration camp of Auschwitz, a group of Jews gathering around their Rabbi for evening prayer decided to put God on trial. Because of the horrors they were facing, had already lived through and were seeing on a daily basis, they could no longer believe in what they felt was true and just. If God was All Knowing, He could have stopped the Holocaust. If He was unable to stop it, He was impotent. If He was capable of stopping it, but chose to do nothing, He was a monster.
They condemned God to death.
Then the Rabbi took his place in front of the congregation and said, “It’s time now for evening prayers.”
