A Dybbuk Story 2

Dybbuk Story 1

Click to enlarge.

This was taken from Otzar HaHochma's scanned copy of האמת היחידה, written by יוסף שלום שעשוע, which took a copy of an article printed in השבוע, published in Parshat Aharei-Kedoshim, 5758 (a mere 12 years ago). I'm not going to translate this one, but it tells of a dybbuk story in the United States that occurred a few months earlier.

An interesting side-note: the story says that this seems to be the first exorcism of a dybbuk done via technological wonders (in this case, the telephone). Now, 12 years later, they tried it with Skype.

You know I don't like any of this dybbuk stuff, and don't believe it needs to be advertised. If this is true the poor guy is suffering. I read that Rav Sternbuch recommended he visit a DOCTOR?!

Did you read Parts I and II also?
I just loved it. My husband and I do something special for Melava Malka in honor of Eliyahu HaNavi.
Just can't wait to see him.
BTW didn't you post something about the time frame for the ingathering? If so, send me the link. Thanx
PS did you see the article that the JA is going to look into the "Pathan" link? See, things are moving faster now.

This post is not about the current dybbuk story (except what I said at the end).

Yes, I read parts 1 and 2 about Eliyahu Hanavi too. There's some interesting stuff here in Hebrew that I linked to a while ago, but can't find that post.
"time frame for the ingathering" - don't recall such a post.
Regarding the Pathans, Arutz Sheva just had an article about it too.

Part of הלכות עבודה זרה וחקות הגוים ברמב"ם פרק י"א הל' [כ] (טז) : ודברים אלו כולן דברי שקר וכזב הן, והן שהטעו בהן עובדי עבודה זרה הקדמונים לגויי הארצות כדי שינהו אחריהן. ואין ראוי לישראל שהם חכמים מחוכמים להמשך בהבלים האלו, ולא להעלות על הלב שיש בהן תעלה, שנאמר כי לא נחש ביעקב ולא קסם בישראל (במדבר כג כג). ונאמר כי הגוים האלה אשר אתה יורש אותם אל מעוננים ואל קוסמים ישמעו ואתה לא כן נתן לך ה' אלהיך (דברים יח יד
