The 27-member Habimah theatrical troupe returned to Israel today aboard the S.S. Marine Carp after playing on Broadway for six weeks.

At a reception tendered them last night, Edward A. Norman, president of the American Fund for Palestinian Institution, landed the Habimah players. Israeli representative to the United Nations Aubrey S. Eban, who also spoke, thanked the troupe for bringing to the U.S. a touch of life in the Jewish state.
