The Dybbuk is a Yiddish word that means “the spirit of an angry dead person, especially one who seeks to possess or haunt the living”. It was used by S. Ansky in his 1911 play called The Dybbuk, but the concept of dybbuks was believed long before this time. In Jewish mysticism belief, when someone dies their soul leaves them and goes into another body. This process is known as reincarnation or transmigration of souls and can happen up to 7 times until they have been purified to enter Heaven.

The dybbuk (or dybbukization) is a complicated, multi-faceted concept in Jewish mysticism belief. It represents through its history of origins an amalgamation of elements taken from religious beliefs, medieval fears, and later psychological explanations.
The dybbuk is an evil spirit that takes over its host, but unlike other spirits, it can be expelled through exorcism. The process of being possessed by the dybbuk involved some kind of traumatic event in the past of the person it possesses which results in them having a hole inside their soul. The dybbuk then takes over this person and uses them as its vessel.
The most dramatic manifestation of the dybbuk is in S. Ansky’s play, The Dybbuk, where it is izek who becomes possessed by the dybbuk after losing his fiancee through suicide.
