Dybbuk: A Version
In this compelling retelling of one of the best-known stories of the Kabbalah, a promise broken comes back to haunt the richest man in town. From the moment Sender's daughter, Leah, meets Konin, a poor scholar, the two fall madly in love. Though he only wants the best for his daughter, Sender turns his back on a sacred pact made long before and promises Leah to a wealthy suitor. Konin soon dies of a broken heart but vows revenge for the injustice. When Konin's ghost returns on Leah's wedding day, he possesses the body of his destined bride and refuses to leave,no matter the cost. In Barbara Rogasky's impassioned version of this Jewish legend, featuring dramatic and evocative illustrations by Leonard Everett Fisher, love truly does conquer all.
