"Hava N'Halela": Tzipora Jochsberger and Her Vision for the Hebrew Arts School
Ingall, Carol K.
Journal of Jewish Education, v71 n2 p201-217 May 2005
Tzipora Jochsberger (1920-) educator, composer, and musicologist, dreamed of using the arts to introduce Jews to the richness of their heritage. The founder and director of the Hebrew Arts School in New York (1952-1986), Jochsberger's contributions deserve the attention of Jewish educators and artists who are looking to the arts to address the diverse needs of Jewish learners of all ages. A student of the Jewish Teachers' Seminary in Wurzburg, Germany, Jochsberger was offered an opportunity that would not only save her life, but determine its direction as well. Using interviews, archival data, and Jochsberger's papers both published and unpublished, I have tried to examine her educational vision for the school she nurtured for more than thirty years, discovering in the process that the school was the product of a fortuitous shiddukh: the dream of a gifted Holocaust survivor and the idealism of American Hebraists, the ideologues of Ha'Noar Ha'lvri. (Contains 4 footnotes.)
