AIPAC is saddened by the passing of former AIPAC President Larry Weinberg (z"l) who was a deeply respected leader in the pro-Israel community. Larry and his wife, Barbi, were critical in forging the movement to strengthen the relationship between the U.S. and the Jewish state. Their dedicated efforts over many years educated scores of political and community leaders about the importance of our bipartisan alliance with our democratic ally. Larry was instrumental in ensuring that AIPAC had a regional presence throughout the country and in encouraging pro-Israel supporters to actively engage in the political process. Perhaps most importantly, Larry’s example inspired his family to join him in pro-Israel activism. All who knew him appreciated Larry as a patriotic veteran of World War II, as a giant in our movement, and as a genuine gentleman in his interactions with fellow activists. We join the Jewish community of Los Angeles and his many friends across the country in mourning Larry’s passing and celebrating his life of commitment to the pro-Israel cause.
