The thaw in Soviet-Israel cultural relations continued with the announcement Monday that Israel’s Bat Dor ballet company will soon tour three cities in the Soviet Union.

The dance group will give 13 performances in Moscow, Leningrad and Vilna beginning late in November, at the invitation of the Soyuz Union of Soviet Theaters.

Bat Dor will appear in advance of the planned performances in the USSR of Israel’s national theater, Habimah, and the much acclaimed Cameri Theater.
