Baruch Dayan Emes
I just received a Breaking News Alert from JTA that Tom Lantos has passed away. He was 80. I wrote about his retirement from congress just last month due to sickness. He was a longtime crusader for Jewish issues during his time spent in congress. I hope that his family finds consolation in the fact that he used his position for good and helped thousands of people throughout the United States and abroad. May God console his family among the other mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
