Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The dybbuk, a dead person's soul that possesses a living person, is an ancient and fascinating part of Jewish folklore in Eastern Europe. The stories in this collection, none of which has been translated before, illuminate the different aspects of the Jewish mystical world, including possessions, transmigration, fairy tales, parables and miracles.

Synopsis:

A stunning adaptation of S. Ansky's mystical dramatic legend The Dybbuk with previously unpublished folklore.
