More On The Dibuk From Brazil

R Daniel Eidensohn in his ‘Daas Torah’ blog quotes Rav Moshe Sternbuch Shlita as saying there was no dibuk, but “mental illness”, adding he was urged by the Rav to write and article and publicize his words.

It appears that despite the involvement of prominent Torah personalities, who met with the avreich reportedly infected with a dibuk, Rav Moshe Sternbuch, Av Beis Din of the Eida Chareidis remains firm in his position, that the avreich is mentally ill and even though noted Mekubal HaRav David Batzri is involved, this is not a case of a dibuk.

In addition, R’ Eidensohn in his report, quoting HaRav Sternbuch, that despite reports on various websites that he did, Rav Shternbach never issued a p’sak niddui against the dibuk to prevent any harm to Rav Batzri during the attempt to lure the dibuk out of the avreich.

Rav Sternbuch is also quoted as expressing surprise and dismay over the fact that thousands believe the reports of the man infected with a dibuk.
