Some 30 young men and women comprising the chorus and orchestra of the Jewish community in Rumania arrived Tuesday in Israel headed by Rumania’s Chief Rabbi Moshe Rosen. The group, which was invited to Israel by the mayors of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and other cities, is the first from a Communist country to come to Israel to present Yiddish and Hebrew songs. Their 10-day visit to Israel was with the approval of the Rumanian government, according to a report from Bucharest.
