An Israeli folk dancing group comprised of 29 students from the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, will make an appearance tonight at the large open-air theater in Istanbul as part of the International Students Festival organized by the Turkish Students Federation.

The Israelis are scheduled to appear also in Ankara, Ordu and Izmir as part of their month-long tour of Turkey. This is the first time an Israeli group has been invited by the Turks for its festival.
