Paul Zuckerman, an internationally prominent Jewish community leader, has been named as special adviser to the Carter-Mondale campaign. The announcement was made by Hamilton Jordan, national campaign director. Zuckerman, 64, has been active in Jewish affairs on the local, national and international level for more than 25 years. He is a former president of the United Jewish Charities of Detroit and a vice-president of the American ORT Federation.
