Israeli Actors Will Not Perform at N. Y. Music Hall on High Holy Days

A spokesman for the Radio City Music Hall told the JTA today that arrangements had been made so that Israeli singers and dancers brought here for a special Israeli program at the Music Hall, will not have to perform on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

The Music Hall management acted after having been informed of concern in Israel that the Israeli artists would be performing on the Jewish High Holy Days and that Premier David Ben Gurion had taken a direct interest in the matter.

Israel has offered to pay the cost of advertisements in New York newspapers explaining why the Israeli troupe will not perform. The performers, 35 singers and dancers, will open in a 45 minute revue at the Music Hall Thursday, September 24
