Jewish Demon & Witch Stories

Want to spook yourself? Nitzanimers love to be just a little scared. Late in the day, we love to curl up with our friends and listen to a Jewish story about demons or witches.

We’ve heard scary Jewish stories from Yemen, Eastern Europe, and Belarus, and an oldie-but-goodie from the Talmud.

Our favorites:

  • Hayyim’s Ghost, retold by Eric A. Kimmel, illus. by Ari Binus
  • stories from A Coat for the Moon and Other Jewish Tales, selected and retold by Howard Schwartz and Barbara Rush, illus. by Michael Iofin
  • The Rabbi and the Twenty-Nine Witches, by Marilyn Hirsh
