Information: The two best references:

Shorashim, The Roots of Israeli Folk Dance, which was the Autumn 1974 issue of Dance Perspectives, #59, written by Judith Brin Ingber and edited by Selma Jean Cohen. This highly researched and academically written monograph will provide you with all the leads and citations and quotes you would ever need.

Next would be the January 1991 issue of Viltis magazine. I actually prefer this source, because Vyts Beliajus wrote it from the viewpoint of the "folks," as a witness during the formative years when Jewish dance became Israeli dance. He provides a valuable reality check to the ethereal world of the ivory tower.
