Jewish Ghost Stories

Twilight Between the Worlds: Jewish Tales of Ghosts, Wandering Spirits                                                          and Reincarnating Souls

We’re sorry, registration is now closed.


As darkness descends, the crack between the worlds becomes apparent. Through the story-telling traditions of Jewish folk religion we shall enter the invisible worlds populated by ghosts, lost souls, haunting spirits, dybbukim, and heavenly angelic guides.

Guest scholar and story-teller:
REB SIMCHA RAPHAEL, PH.D. author of Jewish Views of the Afterlife.
