A decision by the organizers of the Maccabiah Games to house the athletes along the coast and not in Jerusalem will result in a loss of $1 million for Jerusalem hotels, the chairman of the Jerusalem Hotel Union said. A Maccabiah spokesperson said that due to the smaller than expected number of participants in the Games, organizers had decided to let the athletes choose for themselves where they wanted to stay, and the athletes had chosen to be close to the sports facilities in Haifa and Caesarea.
