A Dybbuk Event

Love, death, and ghost stories, join us—if you dare—for a night of haunting tales about possessions, obsessions and dybbuk discoveries.

A Dybbuk Event featured a dream team of writers reading original short stories, that evoke the mysterious possibilities beneath our usual realities: journalist Michael Gawenda and his musician son, Husky; storyteller and writer Arnold Zable; playwright Jessica Bellamy; performer and academic Yoni Prior; and comedian Josh Glanc. Also featuring the klezmer ‘gypsy swing’ band, Klezmania.  A wild night of unexpected stories, Jewish dances, online dating and yiddishkiet,
