What are the hours, phone number, and how much does he or she charge?September 5, 2014 2:11 pm at 2:11 pm #1031457
I used to know two good ones. One was killed, and the other one was so upset about it that he jumped out a window.September 5, 2014 2:21 pm at 2:21 pm #1031458
Well, that just had to happen, didn’t it. 🙂
Disclaimer: I have not seen that film, and even if you did, you
probably should not acknowledge the fact.September 5, 2014 2:28 pm at 2:28 pm #1031459
Being killed is the beginning of the story, not the end.September 5, 2014 2:36 pm at 2:36 pm #1031460
There’s that teleconference guy…
Though mishaps can happen. There was an article in a major Jewish magazine about how the Skype for the exorcism and a long-distance shidduch date got mixed up. Pretty horrifying results.
So maybe I would stick to an in-persona consultation so that only the mekubal needs to see your head turn all the way round.
(Randomex: Happens to be I haven’t seen the movie, it’s just pretty well known. I have seen Psycho, though, which is awesome.)September 5, 2014 2:43 pm at 2:43 pm #1031461
I heard that the Chofetz Chaim once did an exorcist, dont know exact details though or any other informationSeptember 5, 2014 3:04 pm at 3:04 pm #1031462
Randomex: The film is quite famous, though I have never seen any of it. I don’t even know the plot, which is surprising. Supposedly it’s a classic and credited with creating the post-Hitchcock horror genre. However, the concept of exorcisms existed long before the movie.September 5, 2014 3:50 pm at 3:50 pm #1031463
However, the concept of exorcisms existed long before the movie.
But not long after.September 5, 2014 3:55 pm at 3:55 pm #1031464
No, no Haleivi, that was an obstetrician you needed, not an exorcist. (you’re not sleeping??)September 5, 2014 4:31 pm at 4:31 pm #1031465
If we believe in the concept of a dybbuk, then we believe in exorcism, too.September 5, 2014 4:36 pm at 4:36 pm #1031467

You don’t need an exorcist, you can just buy a treadmill.
Does this mean HaLeiVi gets a mazel tov?September 5, 2014 5:17 pm at 5:17 pm #1031468
@DaasYochid – I guess that’s how ghosts get their exorcise. 😛September 5, 2014 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm #1031469
There are plenty. Just go to any gym 🙂September 5, 2014 6:49 pm at 6:49 pm #1031470

did your techias hamaysim dance go bad ????September 7, 2014 7:59 am at 7:59 am #1031472
Sam2: I was referring to DaMoshe’s direct reference, not assuming
that HaLeivi’s mention of exorcists could only have been inspired by the film.September 7, 2014 11:10 am at 11:10 am #1031473
I am expert at getting clogs out of pipes, to see if I can help you ask the mod to contact me off site.September 7, 2014 2:46 pm at 2:46 pm #1031474
Randomex: I made a direct reference as well without having seen the fil (and also got DaMoshe’s). It’s sort of bled into the pop culture.September 7, 2014 5:39 pm at 5:39 pm #1031475
Randomex: I didn’t know that was a reference to the movie. I actually thought it was a reference to the Chozeh MiLublin’s death.September 7, 2014 9:38 pm at 9:38 pm #1031476
Sam2: I thought the legend of the Chozeh’s death was that he was somehow thrown from a window while attempting to hasten the coming of Moshiach, not that he was upset about another tzaddik being killed and jumped.September 7, 2014 11:25 pm at 11:25 pm #1031478
He wasn’t Niftar then.September 8, 2014 7:35 am at 7:35 am #1031479
Yes, I know. The fall was on Simchas Torah, and he was niftar the following Tish’ah b’Av. (Right?)
Actually, is that story historic?September 8, 2014 2:01 pm at 2:01 pm #1031480
If you tend to believe Tzadikim and don’t suspect Baalei Ruach Hakodesh of lying, then I guess so.September 8, 2014 5:10 pm at 5:10 pm #1031481
Randomex: He supposedly fell out a window. The Chassidim say it was fighting Shaeidim. The Misnagdim/Maskilim said it was because he was depressed. Either way, though, it’s a good parallel to the post.September 8, 2014 5:33 pm at 5:33 pm #1031482
I think everyone needs to get involved in this thread! The power of the CR compels you!September 8, 2014 6:13 pm at 6:13 pm #1031483
I was drawn to this thread after DaMoshe’s last post
