The Dibbuk Box

Truman State Univ Press

A series of eerie events slowly unfolds when a wine cabinet sells at an estate sale in Oregon. It is soon sold and resold on eBay's Internet auction, and each new owner becomes desperate to get rid of the box along with the health problems, accidents, or death they claim came with it.

Jason Haxton, the curator of a medical museum in a small Missouri town, learns of the mysterious cabinet and is intrigued by it as an artifact to be studied and researched. He places a bid on eBay and soon finds himself the proud owner of the Dibbuk Box. But as he carefully investigates and records everything he can about this unusual item said to be possessed by a Jewish spirit, Haxton discovers far more than he bargained for. In this true account, a dark story comes to light a story that began at the time of the Holocaust and seems to have come full circle.

Haxton’s story is the basis for a Lionsgate production, The Possession, by producer Sam Raimi. Haxton is featured in a docudrama for SYFY Channel’s Paranormal Witness 2 and he was interviewed for History Channel’s H2 program, all appearing in 2012.
