HELSINKI, Finland — Secretary of State George P. Shultz attended a Sabbath dinner today with American, Soviet and Finnish Jews and served notice that the human rights issue will have "pride of place" in President Reagan's summit talks with Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev next week.

"We can't see for the life of us why people shouldn't be allowed to live their lives the way they want to live them," said Shultz, who was warmly applauded when he entered the meeting room in the Jewish community center here.

Morris B. Abram, president of the National Conference on Soviet Jewry, told Shultz that his unwavering support for Soviet Jews will be one of his legacies as secretary of state.
