Boston’s Israel Folkdance Festival Honors Long-time Ramah Rosh Rikud Lorraine Posner Arcus!

Long-time Ramah New England Rosh Rikud (Head of our Dance Program) Lorraine Posner Arcus is being honored this year at Boston’s thirty-fifth annual Israel Folkdance Festival!  The Festival showcases hundreds of Israeli Folk dancers each year – children, teens, college students and adults – together on stage in an afternoon of exuberant dance.  As a special part of this year’s program, Lorraine Posner Arcus will be recognized as the Festival’s Honoree of the Year for her significant contributions to the world of Israeli Folkdance over the last 36 years.   

Lorraine spent many summers at Camp Ramah in New England.  The vibrancy of our rikud (dance) program at camp these days is the direct result of Lorraine's many years developing and directing the program. 

This year's Israel Folkdance Festival is being held on Sunday, March 13, 2011 at 3:00 p.m. at Kresge Auditorium at M.I.T. We hope that many of our Boston-area Ramahniks will attend the festival!
