News & Events

Judith announces with great pride that there is a new dance archives at the Ohio State University, Lawrence and Lee Theatre Research Institute Thompson Library Special Collections. It is the Judith Brin Ingber Jewish Dance Archives.

Information from her new archives at the Ohio State can be coordinated through the readers' guides of her collection at the Israel Dance Library and her collection at the Performing Arts Archives of the Elmer L. Andersen Library at the University of Minnesota. This new Jewish Dance Archives in her name has been several years in the making, primarily through the inspiration of Hannah Kosstrin, Ohio State's director of graduate studies in dance and also director of their Melton Center for Jewish Studies. Some of the features in the new archives include over 100 letters from Giora Manor, the eminent Israeli Dance critic with whom Judith founded the first Israeli dance magazine in 1975. There are also letters between Judith and other Israeli personalities: the Baroness de Rothschild, founder of both the Batsheva and Bat-Dor dance companies, which employed Judith; correspondence with Israeli Folk Dance founder Gurit Kadman; with Inbal Dance Company founder and company director Sara Levi-Tanai who also employed Judith as her assistant. There are also many dance company programs from the years she lived in Israel (1972-1977).

Judith's Dedication

The Oxford Handbook of Jewishness and Dance Cover

Judith is honored with the simple but bold dedication on the opening page of the important, new Oxford Handbook of Jewishness and Dance.

It reads: Dedicated to Judith Brin Ingber


Wendy Perron, "Dance Magazine" Editor-at-large, reviews the important Oxford Handbook of Jewishness and Dance:

The far-reaching Oxford Handbook of Jewishness and Dance is both a culmination of decades of scholarship and a new look into the intersection of dance and Jewishness. No longer an obscure, occasional practice, Jewish dance scholarship has arrived. It has been accumulating for years, with Judith Brin Ingber, to whom the book is dedicated, leading the way. Researchers like Dina Roginsky, Henia Rottenberg, and Nina Spiegel have carried the torch. Young scholars like Hannah Kosstrin and Rebecca Rossen have recently given us provocative books and essays, laying the foundation for this new phase of investigation. | Read the full review here


Judith co-edited the unusual all English issue Mahol Achshav (Dance Today) #36 with Israeli editor Ruth Eshel.
