Israel Ambassador Abba Eban, who was elected president of the Weizmann Institute of Science at Rehovot, will continue to serve in his present post in Washington and as head of the Israel delegation to the United Nations, Maurice M. Boukstein, vice president of the American Committee for the Weizmann Institute, announced today.

“Ambassador Eban’s acceptance of this great academic honor will not deprive him of the opportunity to continue to be of service to the State of Israel in whatever capacity he may be called upon to serve now and in the future,” Mr. Boukstein said. He added that “there is every expectation that under the leadership of Ambassador Eban, the Weizmann Institute will continue to grow and play an ever increasing role in the advancement of science and fundamental research.”
