Maccabia Winners
Consider Aliya

TEL , AVIV (JTA)—Six
American gold medalists in
the recently held 10th Mac-
cabia games have said they
plan to settle permanently
in Israel and are looking
into job prospects in their
particular fields.
The group is receiving as-
sistance from an Israeli
coach and from the Ameri-
can Committee Sports for
Israel which sponsored the
300-member U.S. Maccabia
contingent.
The _prospective immi-
grants are: Elias Jerassi,
who was born in Haifa and
wants to enroll in Medical
school in Tel Aviv, who won
a gold medal in the ham-
mer-throw ; Joe Gould, 22,
of Los Angeles, who won
two gold and two silver
medals in track and field
events and wants to contin-
ue his career as 'a gym in-
structor in Israel; Ken
Kring, 26, who aspires to be
a psychologigt, and his
brother, Barry; Jay Push-
kin, of New York, a discus
thrower; and Gerry Cohen
of Arizona, who won the
five and 10 kilometer races.
It was learned that about
80 other Maccabia partici-
pants from abroad have'ex-
tended their stays in Israel
to consider the possibility
of settling there.
