Pictured above is the proclamation of the Michi-
gan House of Representatives declaring Sunday,
April 8, as Michigan Education Day. Gov . William G.
Milliken signed an executive declaration proclaiming
the observance.

Rabbi Yitschak Kagan of
Cong. Mishkan Israel
Nusach H'Ari-Lubavitcher
Center said he brought a
copy of the U.S. House Reso-
lution proclaiming Educa-
tion Day, 1978, and urged
the Governor to proclaim a
similar day in 1979.
Rabbi Kagan said that
attorney Irwin I. Cohn
also was helpful in ob-
taining the proclamation.
State Representative
Joseph Forbes of Oak
Park, whom the rabbi
identified as a friend of
Lubavitch, provided the
contact with the State
House.
The executive declaration
from the Governor reads:
"At the beginning of the
current school year, the
world-renowned religious
leader and great American,
Rabbi Menahem Mendel
Schneerson (known as the
"Lubavitcher
Rebbe"),
called upon governments of
the world and all those hold-
ing responsible positions in
the field of education to pro-
vide an education that not
only will impart knowledge
but also will teach the stu-
dents how to live — an edu-
cation that will form and
strengthen their moral fiber
and their character in a way
which will make a better
life for them as individuals
and for society as a whole.
Such ethical emphasis is
often lacking in.today's edu-
cational systems.

organization in Michigan

of Rabbi Schneerson), with
its branches in Oak Park,
