Quadruplets born to a young Holon couple at Tel Aviv Maternity Hospital, — the first in the hospital’s 20 years — have a good chance to survive, though each weighed less than a pound at birth, hospital physicians said today.

The mother, 21-year-old Aviva Arami, had a normal pregnancy — her first — and was not given the fertility drugs which often produce as many as five infants. The father, Adi Arami was overjoyed, a reaction tempered by the fact that the Aramis still do not have an apartment of their own.

The couple have lived with the mother’s parents and then with the father’s parents. Holon municipal officials are busy trying to find temporary quarters suitable for such a large family. The officials said the flat the Aramis are scheduled to get should be ready within a few months.
