A man and a woman shudder from the dominant rhythm of love. They wish to be united, as the old oath their parents made demands. But the oath is breeched. The man dies of sorrow, but his spirit, that can’t find just, shall possess the body of his beloved and deny leaving it, by that defying the laws that separate the deceased from the living.
And so the story of “The Dybbuk” begins. It is a story about the intense presence of love and God and not a story about their absence.
