January 5, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) issued the following statement in response to the news that Representative Steve Israel (D-NY) will not be seeking re-election:

“The National Jewish Democratic Council would like to thank our dear friend Representative Steve Israel for all he has accomplished during tenure in the House. Formerly the chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Rep. Israel rose to leadership when the party needed him most, after losing the majority in the House in the 2010 midterms. After more than fifteen years in Congress, we know him to be a true leader in the fight for Jewish values. We look forward to seeing his next steps and wish him the best of luck in his next endeavors.”
