Module Content



Ansky's The Dybbuk is arguably the most iconic play of the entire canon of Jewish dramatic literature. S. Ansky (pseudonym of Shloyme Zaynvl Rapoport, 1863-1920) was a Russian-Jewish ethnographer and playwright whose signature work The Dybbuk played a seminal role in shaping modern Yiddish and Hebrew theater. This kit presents resources to help teachers teach about the play, its production history, and its significance, as a means of introducing students to a classic work of Jewish theater.
