Paul Zuckerman of Detroit, a communal leader and farmer general chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, has been named as national chairman of the Committee for the Establishment of the Hubert H. Humphrey Parkway in the American Bicentennial Park in Israel.

Announcement of his appointment was made by Moshe Rivlin, chairman of the board of directors of the Jewish National Fund in Jerusalem. Rivlin also reported that Vice President Walter Mondale agreed to serve as the honorary chairman of this memorial tribute to Humphrey, who had also served as Vice President.

To perpetuate the memory of the late Senator, the highway will be constructed as a joint Israel-American endeavor. The scenic highway will stretch for six miles along the mountain ridges and down the rocky slopes in the Judaean Hills south-west of Jerusalem. Zuckerman held many leadership positions in international Jewish affairs. He served as UJA president from 1974 to 1976, and is currently honorary national chairman.
