Description: The Hebrew word "dybbuk" comes from a word meaning "cleaving" or "clinging." A dybbuk is a wandering, disembodied soul which enters another person's body and holds fast. This astonishing book chronicles six fully documented and dramatized reports of possession and exorcism in the Jewish experience--including accounts of the dybbuks of Safed, Smyrna, Baghdad, Brisk and Radin.
Compellingly written by the author of "The Golem of Prague," the Dybbuk also features a captivating look at the traditional Jewish perspective on reincarnation, ghosts, apparitions, magic and superstition. A riveting, powerful book that you won't be able to put down!
