The Dybbuk That Wasn't

Way back at the end of the year 2009 and beginning of 2010 we were witness to the drama of a supposed dybbuk, a number of attempted and failed exorcisms by Rav Batzri, and much debate as to the veracity of the story and the question of the existence of dybbuks in general.

In a shocking revelation, someone from the community in Brazil of the man who had supposedly been possessed is now speaking up. The fellow, Ezra Weiss, according to Bechadrei, is saying publicly what everyone in Brazil already knows - that the possessed fellow is simply a crazy person, and has publicly admitted that he was pulling a fast one.

The guy claims to have learned how to speak from his stomach (a ventriloquism course or two, I guess), along with learning the languages used in the performances (French, German, and Spanish), and then called the local beis din who refused to play along. He then tried Rav Batzri, and we all witnessed the performance.

Yes, some people are just crazy. And some of us will believe anything.

  1. Why believe him now?
    Maybe it's the dybbuk talking!

    Don't you remember that Rav Batsri had him placed in cherem?

    Maybe the dybbuk's looking to be freed?

    And once that happens, watch out!!

    Sly dogs, these dybukks are.
