Seduced by Eternity: Reflections on Culture and Peoplehood

By Nessa Rapoport

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), October 2006

The author reflects on the relationship between culture and the Jewish people, exemplified by the enduring relevance of S. Ansky's play, The Dybbuk, which was written almost a century ago. She concludes that each of us is heir to a royalty whose mantle we are given at birth, to wrap ourselves in it to contribute to the culture of this remarkable people.
