    For the sake of information, I found that a dibbuk/dybbuk in Jewish folklore/mythology/teaching/whatever is a misplaced spirit that can neither rise to Heaven nor descend into Hell, essentially stuck in Limbo or purgatory. Here's another definition I found: 1. (Jewish folklore) a demon that enters the body of a living person and controls that body's behavior. Synonyms: dybbuk. 2. Evil Spirits, that cause mental illness, rage and changes of personality. The spirit or soul of a dead person that inhabits the body of a living one, with sometimes evil, sometimes positive results.

    If you believe in paranormal phenomena, the box contains or is possessed by at least one dibbuk, possibly two, as the grandmother stated: a dibbuk, and a keslim. Keselim is a term similar to a turkish word that means "priest."


    very complicated

    Jewish folklore doesn't "dispose" of spirits/souls via "heaven" or "hell" ... that is a decidedly Christian philosophy. In genuine "traditional" Jewish folklore, the souls of the departed go nowhere, but instead sleep in the earth where the body is buried, and the "spirit" (not the same thing as the soul) returns inexorably to the Creator.

    It's not surprising that some might suggest a heaven or hell destination, though, as Christian influences are doubtless formidable, even in more modern European Jewish folklore.

    The Dybbuk Box, as far as I can tell is currently owned by a man named Jason Haxton in Kirksville, Missouri. He does not arrange for showings of the box. Information can be found here:
