New York—“God gives and God takes,” intoned Rabbi Elliot Cosgrove, the late Senator Frank Lautenberg’s spiritual leader and friend, as he began a Jewish funeral unlike many others— and then mourners “ripped kriah—the symbolic ritual of tearing one’s garments, followed by Shema—the affirmation of faith.

“The spirit of Frank Lautenberg has passed into God’s hands,” said the Senior Rabbi of the Park Avenue Synagogue, Senator Lautenberg’s New York shul.  “Frank was a mensch through and through, a noble defender of right ideals.  Speaking to the Senator’s widow, Bonnie Englehart Lautenberg, he assured her, “We are here to support you.”  Rabbi Cosgrove...
