East Germans Invite Israeli Chess Buff

Israel’s senior chess coach, Yisrael Galfer, has been invited to lecture in East Germany.

He will participate in a 10-day seminar on the contributions of chess to the development of science and culture, Maariv reported Sunday.

The seminar opens Aug. 24. Galfer will be the first Israeli to attend. Until now, the Communist regime has refused to invite Israeli chess masters to compete in tournaments.
