Report: Strong Majority of USA Jews Remain Pro-Israel

American Jews are still standing strong with Israel. According to a new poll conducted for the Ruderman Family Foundation, 80% of American Jews describe themselves as pro-Israel and more than 70% say their personal attachment to Israel is as strong or stronger than it was five years ago. The survey was conducted recently on a sample of 2,500 USA Jews. 67% said they were "attached" or "very attached" to Israel on an emotional level. At the same time, 57% identified as pro-Israel but also critical of Israeli policy. "It appears doomsday talks about an irreversible chasm between Israel and the American Jewish community were mistaken," said Jay Ruderman, president of the Ruderman Family Foundation. (VFI News)
