Mavor Accepts Declaration
of Rights for Soviet Jewry

Heading a delegation of Detroit Jewish leaders, Dr. Samuel
Krohn, president of the Jewish Community Council, presented Mayor
Cavanagh with a copy of "A Declaration of Rights for Soviet Jewry."
Adopted by 25 national Jewish organizations, the declaration was dis-
played during the observance of the High Holy Days, in each of the
3,000 synagogues, and Jewish communal buildings throughout the
country. The declaration is a plea for the restoration of basic human
rights to the Soviet Union's Jewish minority, "on a basis equal to
that enjoyed by other religious, national and ethnic minorities in
Russia." Accompanying Dr. Krohn (to the right of the mayor,
center) as members of the delegation were (from left, seated) Rabbi
Chaskel Grubner, executive director of the Council of Orthodox
Rabbis of Detroit; Lawrence Gubow, co-chairman of the council's
special committee on anti-Jewish discrimination in the USSR; Walter
E. Klein, executive director of the council; (standing) Bernard
Panush, president of the Greater Detroit Bnai Brith Council; Rabbi
Benjamin Gorrelick of Cong. Beth Aaron; Rabbi Leon Frain of
Temple Israel; Edwin Shifrin, chairman of the council's culture
commission; and Benjamin Laikin, co-chairman with Gubow.
