The Dybbuk, phantom of the “lost world”

From 26 September 2024 to 26 January 2025

In popular Jewish culture, a dybbuk refers to a wandering soul that takes possession of a living person, according to a belief that developed in Eastern Europe from the 18th century onwards. The dybbuk is one of those supernatural creatures that have gone beyond the realms of superstition to become a theme that inspires artists past and present. The mahJ is devoting a rich exhibition to the dybbuk, combining theatre, film, music, literature and popular culture.
