The National Jewish Democratic Council today congratulated Jacob “Jack” Lew on being named White House Chief of Staff by President Barack Obama. NJDC President and CEO David A. Harris said:

“Throughout his time leading the Office of Management and Budget, Jack Lew has lived his Jewish values every day by working to strengthen the economy and ensuring that painful budget cuts do not strand vulnerable Americans. Mr. Lew has had such deep experience at the Department of State and the White House, and it’s wonderful to learn that President Barack Obama has selected him to help lead this White House staff forward—and to enact this President’s programs. We wish Jack a hearty ‘mazel tov’ —congratulations—and wish him all the best in this crucially important new position.”
