Washington, D.C. (October 14, 2012) — The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) mourns the passing of U.S. Senator Arlen Specter, who dedicated his life as a public servant to the people of Pennsylvania and the United States.
RJC National Chairman David Flaum said, “Arlen Specter was a devoted public servant with a great passion for justice. He was a staunch supporter of Israel in the U.S. Senate and during his tenure led efforts to expand and enhance the U.S.-Israel relationship. He was also a leading advocate for freedom for Soviet Jewry.
“May his family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.”
