On March 27, 2021, former US Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut passed away in New York at the age of 82. The Washington Post reported his death, citing complications from a fall as stated by his family.

Lieberman made history as the first Orthodox Jew to serve in the US Senate. In 2000, he ran for Vice President alongside Al Gore but lost to George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Lieberman was known for his close relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his visit to Israel following the October 7 attacks.

Netanyahu paid tribute to Lieberman in a blog post, praising him as an honest, courageous public servant who defended the Jewish people and the Jewish state. The Prime Minister remembered Lieberman for his moral compass, common sense, and unwavering commitment to the truth. Lieberman’s gentle nature and loyalty as a friend were also highlighted in the tribute. Netanyahu ended by expressing the loss felt by many now that Lieberman has passed away.
