Israeli Dance Group a Hit in Germany

Download PDF for this date

The Israeli dance ensemble “Shalom 83” is on a tour of West Germany and won rave reviews in its first appearance in an open air international dance and folk song festival in Munich last Saturday. The show was aired live by the Eurovision television network.

For security reasons, the German moderator of the show failed to mention that the Israeli ensemble was to participate with the dance and folk song groups from various nations from four continents. But the Israelis were the highlight of the show, receiving more TV time than any other group.

They were received enthusiastically by the audience and were watched by millions of TV spectators across Europe. At the end of the show, the audience joined in singing famous Israeli songs.
