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.
