RJC Mourns the Passing of Gordon Zacks

Washington, D.C. (February 1, 2014) -- The Republican Jewish Coalition mourns the passing of Gordon Zacks of Ohio, one of the founders of the RJC.

RJC National Chairman David Flaum said, "We are deeply saddened by Gordy's passing. He was a great friend. As one of the early leaders of the RJC, Gordy helped to establish the organization as a big tent, where Jewish Republicans from across the Republican spectrum could engage in building, on a national scale, a respected and effective Jewish Republican presence in our party and in our community."

RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said, "Gordy made significant contributions to the RJC and to the Republican Party as a leader, advisor, and mentor. He demonstrated his love for this country and for the Jewish people in countless ways. He will be sorely missed."

May his family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
