The New Jersey Democrat will be feted Wednesday night at the annual gala for Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life. The group cites Lautenberg’s contributions to the Jewish community and Israel.

Among the accomplishments they cite are the Lautenberg Amendment, which allows for the resettlement of religious minorities, and his creation of a cancer treatment center at The Hebrew University in Israel.

Lautenberg will receive Hillel’s annual Renaissance Award. The organization also has created a prize that it will award in Lautenberg’s name to philanthropic organizations.

The 89-year-old Lautenberg is the Senate’s oldest member. He announced in February that he won’t seek re-election next year.
