Hora

Hora was a quarterly newsletter published by the American Zionist Youth Foundation and edited by Fred Berk from 1968 until his death in 1980. It continued for at least 8 more years with Ruth Goodman as editor. Usually 6 pages, it contained articles about choreographers, performing groups, background of dances, coming events, etc.

There was an earlier version Fred had put together from 1962 to 1964.

Several pages with articles about the changes in dances in different locations as well as stores about the creation of 7 dances can be seen at A Research Project. An article about a workshop in 1978 with 150 dance teachers and one with 7 more dance backgrounds are at More Background About Dances.
