Welcome to Jewish Sacred Dance with Latifa Berry Kropf

Jewish sacred dance is a form of tefillah (prayer) using one's whole being-body, heart, mind, and soul. The dances are participatory and are sources of joy and peace. The ADULT DANCES use liturgical melodies in Hebrew and English focusing on bringing us into closer connection to the transcendent and immanent aspects of G*d. To see some dance clips and the titles of the dances included on my Jewish Sacred Dance video please click on adult dances.

The CHILDREN'S DANCES are fun and joyful additions to holiday celebrations and classroom learning. Many are dances for hagim including Chanukah, Simchat Torah, Kabbalat Shabbat and Havdalah. To see some dance clips and a listing of all the dances please click on children's dances.

I have also been an educator for thirty five years. One of the activities I did with the students at my Jewish preschool was to make challah every Friday. The children loved it, as did the parents who got to enjoy it for their family Shabbat dinners. I had never seen a book about challah making for children so my good photographer friend, Tod Cohen, and I set out to fill in the gap.

"It's Challah Time" which includes adorable pictures of my preschool children was published by Kar-Ben in 2002. Since then I have written five more books in that series and one board book about Rosh Hashanah.

Latifa was recently interviewed on The Book of Life's Podcast.
