Rosh Chodesh December

We Dance Because We Can

Led by Sharon Gelboin-Katz

Sunday, December 15 at 7:30 pm

In the OKC Social Hall


Ever since the women danced with their timbrels at the Red Sea, dancing has served as a powerful expression of our national identity.  Gurit Kadman, organizer of the first folk dance festival in Kibbutz Dalia in 1944 and subsequent festivals, writes that “we are a dance-loving nation.  We always have been.” New dances based on many traditions from the diaspora, writes Kadman, became “an expression of the new life of a reborn nation in its ancient land.”  Join us for a lively evening of Israeli dancing led by our own Sharon Gelboin-Katz as we prepare to celebrate Channukah, which will conclude in the beginning of Tevet.
