Blanchard was a staunch sup-
porter of Israel and he and his
first wife, Paula, were active in
the Soviet Jewry movement.
"It is an interesting wrinkle,"
the governor said. "When I was
a congressman, I represented a
huge portion of the Jewish com-
munity. But I didn't run around
saying my father was Jewish. It
wasn't appropriate."
Mr. Blanchard is survived by
his wife, Nora; by Gov. Blanchard
and his wife, Janet; daughter and
son-in-law Suzanne and Robert
Brook of Okemos; a stepson and
stepdaughter-in-law, Edward
and Carol Zellner of West Bloom-
field; four grandchildren and
three great-grandchildren.
Robert Naftaly, director of the
state Office of Management and
Budget for four years under Gov.
Blanchard, believes the gover-
nor's strong ties to the Jewish
community are the result of
shared values.
"He agrees with our basic
tenets and his support of Israel
was always strong," Mr. Naftaly
said.
