Popular Article: Dybbuk

Dybbuk, by Ephraim Moshe Lilien (1874–1925)
In Kabbalah and European Jewish folklore, a dybbuk is a spirit of a dead person that attaches itself to a person on earth. The word "dybbuk" is derived from a Hebrew term meaning "attachment." According to kabbalistic tradition, a soul that has not been able to fulfill its function in its lifetime is sometimes given another opportunity to do so in the form of a dybbuk. Dybbuks seek out people who face similar challenges or circumstances to themselves and attach themselves to their bodies.
