"The late Senator leaves behind a distinguished record of public and Jewish communal service that distinguishes him as a giant among American Jewish political leaders," the National Jewish Democratic Council said on Monday after Democrat Senator Frank Lautenberg passed away at 89.

In a statement to the press, Chair Marc R. Stanley said Lautenberg was a "staunch defender of progressive ideals and a stalwart advocate for the State of Israel and the American Jewish community.

Lautenberg was a true friend to NJDC and we will forever miss his wisdom and insight," Stanley said.
