|Tzipora Jochsberger was born in 1920 in a small village in southern Germany into a loving family that knew very little about Judaism. Joschsberger became dtermined to learn more about Judaism after she learned of her parents' death in 1944 in Auschwitz. While attending the Jewish Teacher's Seminary in Wurzburg, Germany, Emil Hauser offered Jocshberger the opportunity to leave Germany and go to pre-state Israel to study at Jerusalem's Palestine Academy of Music. Upon arrival she was soon fluent in Hebrew and she subsequently graduated with two music diplomas. After a brief stint teaching at an Arab teachers college, she persuaded the Jewish Agency to send to her to America to implement a teaching method she had developed. "Hava N'chalela" was a teaching method using the recorder to transmit through music the knowledge of Judaism, its holidays and culture to Jews throughout the world. During her stay in America, Jochsberger attained a doctorate of sacred music from the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York. In 1952, she started the Hebrew Arts School in Manhattan. The school, now known as the Elaine Kaufman Cultural Center, has blossomed from 16 students in 1952, to an enrollment of more than 2,000 students. In 1986, she returned to Israel, and began working in the Israel Music Heritage Project, through which she produced an award-winning 10-part documentary video series called "A People and its Music." Jochsberger is also known as a composer, and her works have been performed worldwide.
