A proclamation calling for the restoration of human rights to
Soviet Jewry was signed Dec. 6 by Governor Milliken, in the presence
of Jewish communal representatives. With Gov. Milliken are (from
left) Dr. Jack Stanzler and Nathan Schafer of the Flint Jewish Com-
munity Council; Rabbi Philip Frankel of Lansing; and Walter E.
Klein, executive director of Detroit's Jewish Community Council. The
signing coincided with similar proclamations on Hanuka in states
throughout the country. Another was issued by Detroit Mayor Cava-
nagh commemorating the adoption of the Universal Declaration of
Human Rights.
