Former Senator Joseph Lieberman, a dedicated friend of Israel, passes away in New York

Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, a US political figure known for his Orthodox Jewish beliefs and his commitment to Israel, passed away on March 27 at the age of 82 in New York. The news was reported by The Washington Post, citing a statement from his family.

According to relatives, the cause of death was complications following a fall. Lieberman had been an active public figure for many years, including serving as the first Orthodox Jew in the US Senate and running for US vice president alongside Al Gore in 2000. However, he ultimately lost to George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

Despite his political failures, Lieberman remained committed to promoting peace and prosperity in Israel. He had most recently visited the country shortly after the attacks on October 7, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu paid tribute to him on his X-blog after hearing about his passing. Netanyahu praised Lieberman as an exemplary public servant and American patriot who stood up for what he believed in despite facing opposition from many quarters. He also described Lieberman as unusually gentle and a loyal friend who was always willing to listen to others’ opinions and offer advice without judgment or criticism.
