In the Hallel we ask "Why should the nations say, 'Where, now, is their God?' Our God is in heaven, whatever he desires, He does. Their idols are of silver and gold, the product of human hands: they have a mouth, but cannot speak; they have eyes, but cannot see; they have ears, but cannot hear; they have a nose, but cannot smell; their hands cannot feel; their feet cannot walk; they can make no sound with their throat. Like them should be their makers, everyone that trust in them.” I found it interesting that some people pray and trust their gods, which are idols and they were the ones that made them. People pray to objects that can’t even move or speak or even listen. How come people can’t believe Hashem when he has shown himself in the past, but they can believe in objects that they created and they are aware that they made them? I want to know why people can have faith and pray to a non-moving object and they can’t believe in a Hashem? I think that the answer to this question is that some people could believe in idols and not in Hashem because you can see idols. Hashem is not physically visible so some people actually want to pray to something that they can see and touch. Also, I think that Hashem does this on purpose because he wants people to believe in him with faith and trust.
