This report provides information on the experience, perceptions, and views of local American Jewish leaders in relation to the State of Israel, derived from a survey of American Jewish leaders in six cities. The report find that while personal commitment of American Jews to Israel is becoming weaker, the view of Israel as an essential element of Jewish life appears to be undiminished among local American Jewish leaders of all ages. The local Jewish leaders surveyed were deeply ambivalent about peace with the Arabs, and there appeared to be a "dovish" tilt to most responses. The survey also shows that local American Jewish leaders tend to be more dovish than American Jews in general, in opposition to the prevailing opinion. If the study has one clear policy message it is the urgency of greater investment in efforts to bring young leadership in Israel and the United States together at the local community level.
