A Greater Detroit Supporting
Group Formed for Israel AKIM

Israel AKIM — the Asso-
ciation for the Rehabilita-
tion of the Mentally Handi-
capped in Israel — gained
strong support here with
the formation of a support-
ing group under the general
chairmanship of Ivan Bloch.
Detroiter Paul Zucker-
man, national chairman of
Friends of AKIM USA, for-
mally welcomed the new
group at an organizing ses-
sion, Monday evening, at
the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Mark Schlussel.
Describing the urgency of
providing support for the
movement in view of
AKIM's dependence on pri-
vate contributions, Israel
government aid being al-
most totally lacking, Bloch
asked for a large member-
ship to provide the assis-
tance needed in behalf of the -
thOusands of Israeli handi-
capped.
The officers and direc-
tors of the newly-formed
Greater Detroit AKIM
chapter wereannounced
by Bloch to include the
following:
Bloch, president; Martin
Goldman, vice president;
Carol Kent, secretary; and
Jack Zwick, treasurer.
Board members are
Leonard _Baron, Marlene
Borman, Harold Beznos,
Gary Cochran, Linda Klein,
David Kratze, Yale Levin,

Mark Schlussel and Barry
Yaker.
The nature of the move-
ment's motivating needs as
well as achievements were
described in an address by
Michele Bokobza, executive
director of the national
Friends of AKIM. She told
of the remedial services
provided in 20 functioning
centers in Israel and the
numerous workshops in
which the retarded are
taught trades.
Her address was com-
plemented by an inform-
ative film, with an accom-
panying narration in He-
brew, which showed how
the handicapped are aided
from infancy to maturity.
In his explanatory
statement about the
AKIM functions, Zuc-
kerman told the newly-
organized group:
"More than 30 years ago,
a small group of dedicated
people in Israel, with a lot of
faith and very little money,
set forth to change the
image of the mentally re-
tarded, and the attitude of
society towards them .. .
"Today, AKIM operates
20 facilities throughout Is-
rael. These include schools,
day-care centers, hostels,
sheltered workshops, social
clubs and athletic facilities.
They offer a broad range of
rehabilitation, training,

and educational services, as
well as counseling and sup-
port for parents.
"For their arduous ef-
forts, AKIM claims a tre-
mendous success rate in the
habilitation and rehabilita-
tion of more than 25,000
children and adults of all
denominations."
A sizeable membership
was recorded in response to
the initial appeals at Mon-
day's meeting, contribu-
tions having been an-
nounced in sums ranging
from $50 to $500.

finding out more about the
organization can write De-
