The Israeli participants
in the Special Olympics
were sponsored by AKIM,
the Association for the
Rahabilitation of the Men- -
tally Handicapped in Israel,
which now has eight operat-
ing U.S. chapters (Chicago,
Detroit, Houston, Miami,
New Jersey, New York, Or-
lando, Philadelphia), with
plans for additional expan-
sion, under the coordination
of national director Michele
Bokobza.
AKIM is an acronym for
the organization's full name
and also means "I shall corn-
fort" in Hebrew. In its 32-
year history, AKIM has an-
nually cared for more than
25,000 children and adults
in Israel of all denomina-
tions.
"We are very, very proud
and delighted with our win-
ners," said Detroiter Paul
Zuckerman, national
president of AKIM U.S.A.
"We thank everyone
who made this dream a
reality, and we hope that
through the visibility of
our 'athletes,' we can
demonstrate the un-
limited potential that our
mentally handicapped
can realize with our
help."

Budget Cuts
- Harmful to
Science: Sela

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Michael Sela, president of
the Weismann Institute of
Science in Rehovot, warned
that Israeli science "stands
at a crossroad. The current
economic crisis must in-
evitably negatively affect
the future of scientific re-
search in this country."
Speaking at the insti-
tute's graduation ceremony,
Sela noted that all Israeli
institutions of higher learn-
ing now face drastic
budgetary cuts.
